From Eric S. Raymond: "The controversy over the presidential vote in Florida has resulted in
an unprecedented rash of press inquiries about `chad'. These have
come to me, apparently because the Jargon File has the most voluminous
entry on this word of any readily available source.
In response, I have released the 4.2.3 version of the Jargon File as a
special Presidential-election-cliffhanger edition with an updated
entry. Enjoy!" Here's the non-frames version of the Jargon File.
