a) Thanks; fixed
b) I was planning to provide a text-only version anyway, I just wanted
to get some feedback on the content first. But! I uploaded HTML print
versions and ASCII versions of them that you can access by clicking
the "print version" and "text version" links at the top of each page.
You can also now get a tarball of the source and source + ASCII files.

Let me know if there's a better way to present things,
