a 21 page document
with 5 pages of links and
21 pages of foot notes.

some of my college proffesors would have been impressed
but I think there has to be a better way.  very confuseing though trying 
to read it.

interesting article once I figured out how to read it, but

couldn't there have been a tree structure.
(footnotes)
(links) then click thru to the items ???
