A few SVG 2 updates:

* I've refreshed the SVG 2 Changes appendix to list the changes since
   SVG 1.1 Second Edition:


   When you make some changes to the document please list them there, so
   that someone doesn't need to go back through the repository history
   once it comes time to publish.

* I've fixed the styling of the Table of Contents (in index.html as well
   as each chapter) and of the header/footer that appears in each
   chapter.  (They'd both become a bit broken.)

* I've moved old editors of the document to the Acknowledgements section
   and just left people who have made edits to SVG 2 so far.  When you
   make your first edit to the document, please move/add your name
   up the top.

* I've reworded the Status of this Document section a little so that it
   talks about SVG 2 rather than SVG 1.1.

* I've done a bunch of cleanup of the markup in the source files so that
   it should be easier to edit.  (This is basically just a continuation
   of the same work I was doing in the 1.1 Second Edition timeframe.)
   I'd ask people to be mindful of the markup formatting that's in the
   files currently and make sure to use the same when you add text.
   Also, please try to avoid adding tabs to the files. :)

I will try to get commits to get sent as mails to this list like changes 
to the CVS repository do.

As I've been tweaking the markup and formatting, I've been making some 
changes to the publication scripts, so please make sure to update your 
local svg2-tools/ checkout before building locally.  In fact I've 
changed the Makefile in svg2/ to check that your svg2-tools/ is 
up-to-date, so if you run "make" it'll do this check before proceeding 
to build.  (If you type "make all" it will skip that check, in case you 
ever have to do that.)

And please try to build locally before committing your changes, to make 
sure they are correct!
