Speaking strictly as a user of these pages, I think it's definitely an
improvement, much cleaner, and better from where we were.

I would however suggest that an option (and only as an option) be
provided to view a chapter in one page rather than having to navigate
back and forth (with <- , -> at the bottom of the pages). Even better
still, the "Table of Contents" for each chapter, if it were to appear on
each page of the chapter would be very desirable, most useful and

On the whole, an excellent job to date, and I definitely appreciate the
effort, as would others I undoubtedly presume.
