Hi Frederick,
Thank you for making the corrections. As the W3C has always requested
that we have the publication fully ready to publish, I've gone ahead
and made the following changes to the processed document
(Overview.html):

  * Changed date to of the document to the 31 of March (as indicated
by the W3C in their response to our request to publish)

  * changed the style sheet to use the W3C's WD version.

  * Changed the status from Editor's Draft to W3C Working Draft.

Document is now ready to. Nice work everyone :)

Kind regards,
Marcos
