Well, by serving people a page with "localhost", you give no indication of
where  the  Helix Server actually resides. "Localhost" would be useful  if
you   gave  the  user  a  tool  for  investigating/probing   his/her   own
workstation/network properties.

Have  you tried specifying an IP address? Have you disabled firewalls  for
port  8888?  If you need a proxy to access your page from London,  let  me
know. I have an open proxy (password-protected) on my server.

Your English is great. Haven't spotted anything awkward...
