Hi folks,

Actually, regarding the book, I'm not so sure we need any more
review(s)* right now.

I've got 6 fairly thorough reviews already and might want to wait for
any more until I've had a chance to make all those changes. Doug and I
are working on ways to enable old people like me to edit content housed
at www.w3.org, in a way that my errant keystrokes will not cause the
collapse of the web as we know it.

So I might encourage waiting 'til the first round of review(s) has been
dispatched before piling any more for processing.

Cheers
David

*Is review a mass noun or a count noun?

Safari's SquirrelMonkey, Firefox' TraceMonkey).  Let's create some fun
SVG Demos to take advantage of this horsepower and get some wow.  Does
someone want to start a wiki page and we can brainstorm ideas?  Here's
a quickie: Compare the following in Fx3 and in Chrome:
