Finding this tutorial isn't a certainty.  The left margin of 
http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch contains no direct link.  
There is the link "Documentation" anchored at 
http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/compiler/index.html#report . 
That page addresses the language and doesn't lead to 
http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/ethoberon/tutorial/ .
If there is a link elsewhere, I'm afraid most readers must depend on 
Luck to find it.   No need to say, Luck is a poor basis for 
engineering.  =8~)

http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/ should have a link directly to
http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/ethoberon/tutorial/ .  

Further confusion.  The 3rd paragraph in 
http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/ethoberon/tutorial begins
"The document you are viewing right now, is a hypertext document which 
you may have opened under the control of the Oberon System itself 
(with Desktops.OpenDoc index.html) ..."  Where is index.html?  Linux A2 
Generic, Jan 31 2018 has no such file.  If available in S3, it's in an 
optional archive I didn't install.  Wouldn't this be better?
Desktops.OpenDoc http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/ethoberon/tutorial/

No offense to Andre Fischer.  His documentation is a wonderful help.  
Unfortunately a snag in access can hobble it slightly.  In a wiki, a 
link could be added easily.
