    From: H-Net Central 
    
           One of the WWW sites listed on the H-Net guide is:
           IHR-Info (Institute for Historical Research), London:
             ihr.sas.ac.uk:8080/ihr/ihr0101.html
    
           This is a well-respected British history center, and is NOT to be
           confused with a Holocaust-denial operation in California with the
           name Institute for Historical Revisionism.
