Please do so!  For testing and educational purposes, the web site is
directly created by groff from `' (and `groff.css').

Everything's fine now?

Only a non-asked question is a dumb question.  Most of us are far too
involved already to be able to answer beginner's questions in a way
which can be understood by the non-experienced too.

It might be a good idea to read the groff texinfo manual and noting
all passages which aren't clear by the first reading.  Since I'm
Austrian, I tend to write too long sentences, as all German speaker
normally do...
