You can use ``Electronic Book'' CDs (there are 300+ titles available
in this format, e.g. Compton's Concise Encycolpedia, The Concise
Oxford Dictionary and Oxford Thesaurus, The Merriam Webster Dictionary
of English Usage, ...) in the Unix environment using our PaperOut
retrieval software (available for SunOS, Nextstep, Windows 3.1, Apple
Macintosh and Acorn Archimedes). For more information about PaperOut,
