Most information was *missing* because I didn't retype all the  
(draft) information. The point was to show the design, not produce  
the HTML version. I'm happy to keep working on the design, but will  
only transcribe if no one else will :)

Well, I think we want to distinguish between the online version and  
the print out version. The point of *this* design is to show that we  
can have one source for both and that source can be HTML. I would  
imagine we'd have separate CSS for print media and screen media  
(e.g., if only to have standard hyperlinks in the screen one without  
printing underlines everywhere).

Cheers,
Bijan.
