"FT reviews"
 
   I noticed Bruce indicated that FT reviews are no longer available on the web.

If you go to FT.com and search on 'ballet' you can still turn up (for free) many of Crisp's reviews, including his remarks on Guillem & Le Riche in M&A. But the design of the FT site has changed, and the front page does look very cluttered. But persevere and you can get there.

   Also, I just discovered that if you use their Advanced Search function you can also get to the dance articles in the Independent and the Independent on Sunday, which don't normally appear online; and a lot else besides - I asked for entries for 'ballet' for the last week and got 77 hits! Though if you take this route to the Telegraph, say, you can only read it by paying $1.50.

   It's nice to be able to get to Crisp again, but for the moment I can't see how to find unique URLs to bring up the reviews... which means we can't give you a link to click-on to bring up the reveiew straightaway. I will to delve some more, but I'm not immediately aware how to sort this for us...

   Well, this seems to work for today's article: but it was posted from the front page so maybe that makes it easier?

   And this is the M&A review:

Bruce, on netscape there's a little icon on the tool bar that lets you drag the current page address to a text document - though not, for some reason, to a posting, and that seems to work.

   Incidentally I think there's something strange about how the FT site works, or how it interacts with Netscape - several times, after I've abandoned it in mid-search or because I was tired of waiting for it to load, I've found that I could subsequently only load the first few bytes of e.g. ballet.co - and the only solution was to switch off my PC and start again.

   The FT site uses lots of clever stuff I think - but that of course exposes new bugs in browsers
