PT>  From Tom Clancy's /Op-Centre III :  Games of State/, Chapter 49.

>> For a biography of Deputy Foreign Minister Richard Hausen and any

>> TeX Archive Network Heidelberg/*.

Op-Centre III was published on June 1, 1996.  CTAN was officially
announced at the EuroTeX conference in Aston, 1993.  Provided that the
novel was written somewhere in 1994-1995, Clancy seems to be very
interested in current technical news.

Good luck
