I've sent Wout the files for the website.  I did a test run to make sure
they look fine.  I uploaded them to my site and all showed good format and
proper alignment.  So should be fine.  I also sent him a zip file of all
the files so folks can download and edit their own.  Especially the
timelines they may want to use in their own games.

The v2 stuff we are talking about is a total revamp of everything.  But we
are waiting for Richard to get to it.
