David is correct. I stopped calling it Windows NT some years ago and I use
the term Win32 to describe NT/2K/XP/2003, etc. Okay Windows 98, etc. is a
32-bit O/S but those are obsolete. I use the term Win9x (including SE and ME)
for those systems.

The winnt.html needs work. I did update it for this release but it really
needs a lot of reorganizing and I don't have the time right now.
