Yes (but limited).
If you do have the ability to connect to the outside world using telnet,
then there are a couple of sites you can use :

      - telnet.w3.org (limited, but works even without vt100 emulation)
      - info.funet.fi (select service : www)
      - journal.biology.carleton.ca (login as : www)
      - many of the local freenets have a telnet -> www gateway as well

Once you're in, type the command 'G' and the full location (URL)
of the document you want to access.

If you only have e-mail, you can retrieve documents through the
modified LISTSERV at info.cern.ch.
Just send a message to listserv@info.cern.ch containing

        send http://scoutwww.strw.leidenuniv.nl

to retrieve the InterNETional Scouting Page.  You will then get a mail
message with the text and a list of pointers at the end, so you have
to send a separate message for each page you want to view.

A description of this system can be found by sending a message with
send without a URL. This description can also be viewed
