Webster's still owns the copyright to the on-line copies of Webster's
Dictionary which are found at various (university) sites. After it became
aware that these sites were then acting as servers for other sites running
xwebster and gnuemacs-webster, it asked that server sites close off external
access.

[The NeXT machine apparently is also licensed to have the dictionary.  A
Webster daemon for NeXT machines is available from iuvax.cs.indiana.edu
(129.79.254.192) in "pub/webster/NeXT-2.0".]

Unless you want to get a legal on-line copy yourself or can find a site which
can grant you access, you are probably out of luck.

However, if you are a legitimate site, you'll want to pick up the latest
xwebster, as-is on ftp.x.org:R5contrib/xwebster.tar.Z [10/91]; the file
xwebster.README includes discussions of the availability, illegality, and
non-availability of dictionary servers.
