    Greetings All!

    I have just completed an abridged reworking of my web page, "Exceptional
    Measures". Here is an abstract:

    "At the time of writing the A-series of cut paper sizes (defined by ISO
    216) is a familiar accompaniment to life in most countries and promises
    soon to be accepted universally as a truly _international_ standard. Its
    principal representative, A4, has metric dimensions that reveal a
    remarkable affinity with significant features occurring in the texts of
    both Genesis and Revelation - the first and last of the Bible's Books.
    Further, even the sequence number of the standard, viz 216, is found to
    be closely involved in these relationships. Such intriguing matters form
    the basis of the current paper, and the question is asked: How is it
    possible that fragments of ancient writings should map so precisely onto
    an artefact that was not to appear on the world's stage until some two
    or three millenia later?"

    Those interested may view the new page privately at
