+      <h2>A Word of Warning</h2>
+      <p>
+        The documentation you are reading here is the documentation that was written for ReSpec v1. The
+        current release of ReSpec as of this writing is v3.1. That may sound worrying, but it really isn't,
+        for the following reasons:
+      </p>
+      <ul>
+        <li>
+          If you're still on v1, unless you've done something weird or bad, you should have 
+          completely smooth compatibility when upgrading. You really should upgrade though as v1 is no longer
+          supported at all and v3 is a lot better.
+        </li>
+        <li>
+          This means that the documentation here is still accurate. It's just incomplete. But given that I
+          haven't released new documentation yet (though I will) you can stick to reading this guide.
+        </li>
+      </ul>
+      <p>
+        You can upgrade <em>now</em> by replacing whichever way you're referencing ReSpec with:
+        <code>&lt;script src='http://www.w3.org/Tools/respec/respec-w3c-common' class='remove' async>&lt;/script></code>.
+        If in doing so you bump into problems, I really need to look at your spec. So please email me!
