On a separate note, I really want to discourage use of Word or PDF 
files. One needn't be a coder to avail oneself of a simple text editor. 
Machine readability deserves at least some consideration, and by machine 
readability I don't mean just being viewable with a computer, I mean 
being readily parseable.
