Bill, sorry if I missed the message(s) where you might have described this. Is
there an easy way to directly add documentation to an existing pamphlet file
(like a patch) and the change be automatically visible to the discussion forum
(such as reflecting the change on wiki). If possible, then when some Axiom
problem involving the algebra code are discussed, whoever examined and
understood the code can add comments directly. Right now, we create and edit a
wiki page (possibly from emails), and then later this has to be searched and put
into the pamphlet file.

I noted the following Wiki page on MathAction:

You mentioned a new pamphlet PageType (pun intended :-) ?), but the links
(which is apparently a copy of the now defunct page:
where the links (pdf, dvi or src) are broken)
only give the pdf, dvi, and src files of dhmatrix.spad.pamphlet. There are no
instructions how to modify the src file (of course right now just the SandBox
copy, not the original archive copy) and have the modified file recompiled into
pdf, dvi, src files.

By the way, I have no trouble, under Windows and Firefox, to open the three
(pdf, dvi, src) files. The rendering seems ok to me.
