That almost goes without saying.  I am, however, disappointed in what web browsers
do, IE does not respect infos and does strange stuff, and netscape 6.2 uses the
tree structure that automatically sorts everything.  That is IMO why gopher servers
should also be able to present the gopher through the http protocol (ie via hurg,
or my additions to bucktooth).  I have no faith in web browsers and would rather
direct people to the http translation, at least until they can get some groovy
gopher client.
