I think millions is a quite safe estimation probably a lower bondary. :-)

Well, that's wrong.  I stumbled upon the documentation *because* it has
changed!  It was OK in gnumed-doc_1.1.7-1_all.deb.  There were *no*
images at all and *all* links worked.  I stumbled upon the change
because my build system did not worked any more because file locations
had changed.  So if you simply and straight would do the very same as in
version 1.1.7 all problems are vanished.  But *you* did changed
something in the first place and the change was definitely no feature
and I'm not willing to support this broken doc in Debian.

Just make it as it was.  This is what Joey Purehardwareuser want's on
his computer and please also spare him this stupid fancy JavaScripting
stuff at bottom right.  You are draining the offline user into trouble.
Just use the old method you used last year and everything will be fine.

Kind regards
