C. WWW SITES (sorted by URL)

correlated with original and useful content.

So -- these sites do not rely on frames, image loading,
image maps, cookies, wierd backgrounds, lurid colours,

We have categorised these sites as being primarily
content-based or link-based, though the distinction is
arbitrary in most cases.

This is not a review or a list of recommendations, but
if you really don't know where to start, we suggest
ESLCafé or the many excellent pages at the Aichi
