Hi :)

I think people have got to do what they works best for themselves.  After we 
have finished and got 1 set of completed documentation out there then we can 
work at fixing inconsistencies and detail.  

Obviously that is going to be easier when we get to the pages you have done and 
you are likely to find it easy to fix tables and coding on a few people's 
pages.  "Speed is of the essence" now because we have product out there, fully 
released, but with no documentation to back it up.  If we can get a 2nd release 
of documentation out there soon after our 1st then we might redeem ourselves.  I 
do realise i am the slacker here.  I can see all you guys working hard and 
getting excellent results fast.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

them to a slightly different pattern of black, white, and gray.
IMHO, you're absolutely right. Surely it's not an important branding
issue. I don't think we have to get pedantic about things, especially
when it involves a lot of work of secondary priority.

This coming week, I'll start helping you out, and will post at that
time to liaise with you about where I should jump in.

What I've found is that the only step that takes significant amounts of time is 
checking the figures -- I get through all the other stuff in less than half an 
hour, and the majority of that is changing the >  signs to arrows in 
OOoComputerCode. So the changing of the tables, using context menu and menu bar, 
and so on is basically in the noise. I think we have to consider online users 
and not just printed copy users; the
