What i meant was, "Get a <input type="submit" value="Search"> instead
of the JavaScript which is benefiting you nothing at the cost of
considerable portability (given your audience) and fix the header
so it wraps properly." But i wasn't making an issue of it. You have
more important things to do for LFS....

LFS might be big enough to net a decent quality permanent web designer
if you let it be known that you were looking for someone. There's a
reason i mention it....

So the "Read CVS" link goes to an out of date copy but the "Download
Book" link goes to current CVS. I think there must be a way that's less
likely to confuse, but it's your call.
