:OK, it makes sense that the two pages are separate; it looks as
:though LI is intended for hard news, and OTE for rumours and
:fluff (though the distinction seems rather fuzzy in practice).
:What doesn't make sense is that LI can be accessed from the home

:ISTM that both pages should have links in both places.  Just
:another of those www.hawkwind.com mysteries...

You can always access both LI and OTE via direct URLs if the navigation
starts getting confusing.

LI: http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~hwind/up_.htm
OTE: http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~hwind/up_!.htm#ether

(Of course, you probably want to go via the official mechanism, since Rik
is likely to change these URLs as he works on the site, but these are good
as of right now....)
