Somebody has alerted me that they have had difficulty tracking down the
paper by Peter Weston which I mentioned yesterday.  It appeared in a
symposium volume which cant be found at the publisher's web site.  Just now
I couldnt find it at a major Australian bookseller's web site, so perhaps
it is out of print.  It is an interesting book, so here are the full
bibliographic details from the Australian National Library catalogue.
Unfortunately no ISBN is given.
