However, the source text that has been provided to us needs massaging in a number of ways before it can be published as a set of standalone pages. Felix Janda kindly offered to take on that task, and has been making very good progress. I expect that in a week or two, we'll have a set of pages for public review (to see if there are any remaining bugs in the "massaging process" that Felix or I did not spot).
