HOW TO CONTRIBUTE TO HFCL
The majority of HFCL's pages have been created with standard HTML, the "language" for building websites. We have tested HFCL for compatibility with the Netscape 3 browser. However, given the large number of possible combinations of computers, operating systems and browsers, we cannot guarantee the absence of unanticipated effects. Still, if you have a "strange encounter," we would be glad to hear about it at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some parts of HFCL require that your browser have an extra piece of software, a "plug-in", that it can use to interpret special kinds of internet data. These HFCL parts are clearly marked, and information is provided to help you acquire the plug-ins should you wish to do so. The two most frequently used plug-ins are:

Because of this, we have to dedicate our time to the main project, i.e., expanding and updating the site. So, even though we are glad to hear complimentary comments and willing to listen to critical analyses, we probably will not be able to answer them. Please direct your messages to: email@example.com
Our philosophy is rather simple. We are trying to present as much information as we can about the phenomenon known as "communication." Our central audience is made up of high school and undergraduate college students, and we aim our presentations at this audience. Thus, we are most interested in broadly pedagogical material that seeks to make clear the nature of communication, and we are least interested in narrowly focused research reports from the cutting edge of the discipline.
We are not able to present everything that is known about communication, nor can we guarantee that we will always present an ideally balanced "middle of the road" point of view. To those who might point to "missing" or "disputable" content, we would extend an invitation to submit glossary entries or focus segments that support their positions. We hope that this will be part of the process by which HFCL grows.
