Aha, good.  I'll give it a try this week.

We still need to be careful that we represent properly what is marked up 
and what is not.  We will try to mark up all changes of *substance*, and 
try to avoid simple editorial changes.  But at some point, that distinction 
becomes subjective, and we need to be careful not to imply "...if it isn't 
marked, then it isn't different from 2.0".

I'll continue to develop the markup version in that ../highlight-test/.. 
directory.  We can then decide at the last minute.

(Question:  might it be possible to make the unmarked version be the 
authoritative one, and point to a technically identical marked version?  Or 
is that only done at REC level -- normative version versus other 
versions.  I'm not recommending it now, just wondering.)

Yesterday, I verified that my current (desktop) editing directories agree 
with the current ../current-editor/..
