To the Editor.  —The excellent article by Dr Glowniak and Ms Bushway1 was both timely and informative.First, we would like to emphasize the fact that several local World Wide Web (WWW) clients (Mosaic from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and Cello from Cornell, among others) are available for multiple personal computer (PC) types (Macintosh, PC with Windows, and X Windows). While these do have audio and graphics capabilities requiring "substantial memory on the local system and high-speed communication links," these requirements are becoming commonplace. The use of this software makes navigating the Internet both easy and rewarding, and is not impeded by today's technology.Second, we would like to make you aware of our own medical WWW multimedia server called OncoLink (URL= http://cancer.med.upenn.edu or gopher cancer.med.upenn. edu 80). OncoLink has been operational since March 7,1994, and is being constructed with up-to-date multimedia cancer information for health care
