Hi, Shadi --

Here's the template. Turns out that the easiest way
to document this was to put the info into a small
database table -- with a huge bonus being the
ability to re-order it in any way that we like.

On my PC, this is Microsoft Access, but that could
be exported to anything else that would be useful,
such as MySQL, etc. The export to HTML is really
bad (I had to add column headings, for example),
and it would only export in the order that data was
entered. We can overcome this if the basic idea
is what you want -- let me know, and I'll proceed
with the rest of the pages.

See:

Best,

Tom
