hi johannes:  ok, the lwn.net is available now.  it is
interesting---apparently, only more recent versions of Acrobat have
javascript enabled, so they will "ping" home.  though limited in
functionalit, could this become a style file for pdflatex?


easy?  hard?  (I have used javascript twice in html, but never in pdf,
so I really don't know.)
