Hi Allen,

Another advantage of using a customised file as suggested in my
previous e-mail is that you have complete control over the URL used to
access the collection. This makes doing what you require fairly trivial.
In the customised file, instead of linking to your collection
with the standard "...?a=p&p=about&c=<colname>" you can change the
arguments to start on the browse page: "...?a=d&d=CLx&c=<colname>"
(where x is the classifier number).

Hope this makes sense,
