Hello Laird:

   My personal preference is that they all be put
under links. It rarely hurts to put them at least one
other place like News or the FAQ for redundancy. I've
recently done a revision to the Welcome Letter that
includes a link to the FAQ and the Archives. It
probably would be a good idea to also add 'Links' to
these resources in the letter.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy
