Sounds good.

But I just thought of something: a lot of the hyperlinks disappeared in
the ->Frame conversion, since we only intended to use the Frame version
to generate hardcopy. I don't know what WebMaker does about preserving
cross references and/or hyperlinks, and I don't know how much value folks
see in the hypertext cross-references in the HTML version.

But be aware that the Aug22 Frame version doesn't have all the links!

As I won't be there (my wife and I are expecting a child, and the due
date is October 22), I'd like to request a snapshot of the document before
you take it to Chicago. I'll review it and get my comments to that meeting
