Thanks.  For benefit of anyone looking, the domain name has been revised.

Thanks for that also.  Apparently there is no documentation of Native.Tool 
beyond itself.

At present, Wiki is the best form for documentation.  Therefore my personal 
conclusion is that knowledge gleaned from the pdf and Text documents is best 
added to http://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/wiki/Documentation/Oberon.  I've requested 
authorization to edit the Wiki.

Seems my first contribution might be a glossary of terms in the Native.Tool.
Any criticisms or better ideas?

Regards,           ... Peter E.
