navbar file examples from msdn

Hello everyone

I am trying to locate the sample files used in "A tour of the code - NavBar" for the redesign of the msdn online website in 1998. They were written and developed by Robert Carter and George Young and consist of several include files and css files, prepared for ASP. I located the documents in the MSDN Library Archive and this is very, very close to what I would like to do for our own website. The link for the sample downloads is not active and I can find no trace of the samples anywhere, I was hoping that someone out there would have a copy laying around or know of a location that still has them listed
In essence there is a ASP page that calls an include file [doctop.inc], this file contains two links to other incliude files, [browdata.inc] which does a browser detection, and [styles-wks.inc] which sets the [navbar.css] style and selects the appropriate Navigation menu style based on the [browdata.inc] results. Selection is made from [ie3-wks.css], [ie4-wks.css], [nav-wks.css], or [mac-wks.css] style sheets. Tha ASP page then calls the [navbar.inc] file which determines to use either the [navbar-ob.inc] file for static text horizontal menus or the [navbar-gb.inc] for dhtml horizontal menus, it then calls the [footer.inc] which sets the navmenus.inc file to populate the vertical menu and sets the [navbar.js] file to the vertical menu
It sounds somewhat conviluted back it actually sets into motion a fluid framework for website style and control
I have most of the files that I have tracked down but cannot seem to locate [doctop.inc], [footer.inc], I need to see them to determine how they set the gathered information into the ASP page

Thanks in advanc
