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 firstname.lastname@example.org containing
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
