+\section{Adding or Editing pages in Hyperdoc}
+In Axiom it is easy to develop new pages in hyperdoc.
+All of the hyperdoc pages live in bookvol7.1.pamphlet.
+The structure of each page, say for the Fantastic domain, consists 
+of a few lines of latex followed by a literate chunk. All of the
+hyperdoc page information goes into the literate chunk and will
+be extracted as a hyperdoc page.
+ \section{}  <-- ordinary latex
+ \pagehead{FantasticPage}{}{Fantastic} <-- special latex
+ \pageto{.....           <-- for latex (not hyperdoc) links to other pages
+ <<>>=       <-- this is what htadd looks for
+   all the documentation for domain Fantastic
+ @                       <-- this is the end of the page for htadd
+When you add new pages to bookvol7.1.pamphlet you need to tell the
+system about the changes.  The ``htadd'' function will search the
+bookvol7.1.pamphlet file for chunks with the name ``*.ht'' and build the
+file ht.db.
+The ht.db file is used by hyperdoc to find pages. 
+Each line in ht.db contains a line that 
+FantasticPage (byteIndex) (lineIndex)
+So the two critical files, bookvol7.1.pamphlet and ht.db live in \$AXIOM/doc
+There is a very fast cycle for editing.
+cd $AXIOM/doc
+while (1) do
+   axiom                          <-- at the shell prompt
+   (navigate to page in hyperdoc) <-- to check your work
+   )lisp (bye)                    <-- at the axiom prompt
+   (modify bookvol7.1.pamphlet)   <-- change the page
+   rm ht.db                       <-- remove the old database
