OK, I'll drive the bus. Those of you who have typed up stuff, gzip
it up & send it along.

The way I'm typing Chapter 5 is to put a blank line in between
paragraphs (we can always use .blm and take the lazy way out)
and put italic & Courier text on a line by itself (so we can easily
add the .I or .CW macros, or their equivalents, once we sort that
part out). I'm starting each sentence on a new line as well.

I'll post a status list & more thoughts later tonight.
