-<p>
-    You can either use the precompiled libraries from
-    <A HREF="http://www.libsdl.org/download.php">
-    the SDL Download web site </A>,
-    or you can build SDL yourself.
-</p>
-
-
-<H3> Building SDL </H3>
-
-<P>
-     Unzip the <CODE>VisualC.zip</CODE> file into the directory
-     that contains this file (<CODE>VisualC.html</CODE>).
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     Be certain that you unzip <CODE> VisualC.zip </CODE>
-     into <strong>this</strong> directory and not any other
-     directory. If you are using WinZip, be careful to
-     make sure that it extracts to <strong>this</strong>
-     folder, because it's convenient feature of
-     unzipping to a folder with the name of the
-     file currently being unzipped will get you in
-     trouble if you use it right now. And that's all
-     I have to say about that.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     Now that it's unzipped, go into the VisualC directory
-     that is created, and double-click on the VC++
-     workspace file &quot;<CODE>SDL.dsw</CODE>&quot;.
-     This should open up VisualC.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     You may be prompted at this point to upgrade the
-     workspace, should you be using a more recent version
-     of Visual C++. If so, allow the workspace to be
-     upgraded.
-</P>
-
-
-<P>
-     Build the <CODE>.dll</CODE> and <CODE>.lib</CODE> files.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     This is done by right clicking on each project in turn
-     (Projects are listed in the Workspace panel in the
-     FileView tab), and selecting &quot;Build&quot;.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     You may get a few warnings, but you should not get
-     any errors. You do have to have at least the DirectX
-     5 SDK installed, however. (I believe...) The latest
-     version of DirectX can be downloaded or purchased
-     on a cheap CD (my recommendation) from
-     <A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com"> Microsoft </A>.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-    Later, we will refer to the following .lib and .dll
-    files that have just been generated:
-</P>
-
-    <list>
-    <li> SDL.dll
-    <li> SDL.lib
-    <li> SDLmain.lib
-    </list>
-
-<P>
-    Search for these using the Windows Find (Windows-F)
-    utility, if you don't already know where they should be.
-    For those of you with a clue, look inside the Debug
-    or Release directories of the subdirectories of the
-    VisualC folder. (It might be easier to just use
-    Windows Find if this sounds confusing. And don't worry
-    about needing a clue; we all need visits from the
-    clue fairy frequently.)
-</P>
-
-
-
-<H3> Creating a Project with SDL </H3>
-
-<P>
-     Create a project as a Win32 Application.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     Create a C++ file for your project.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     Set the C runtime to "Multi-threaded DLL" in the menu:
-     <CODE> Project|Settings|C/C++ tab|Code Generation|Runtime Library </CODE>.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     Add the SDL <CODE>include</CODE> directory to your list
-     of includes in the menu:
-     <CODE> Project|Settings|C/C++ tab|Preprocessor|Additional include directories </CODE>.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     The &quot;include directory&quot; I am referring to is the
-     <CODE>include</CODE> folder within the main SDL
-     directory (the one that this HTML file located
-     within.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     Now we're going to use the files that we had created
-     earlier in the Build SDL step.
-</P>
-
-<P>
-     Copy the following files into your Project directory:
-</P>
-
-     <list>
-     <li> SDL.dll </li>
-     </list>
