I've introduced minimal mark-up, so that I can specify italics and such
when I need them. And I wrote a program to convert the (almost) plain-
text to .fodt so I can feed it into LibreOffice for a nice printout.
Maybe I should just have used asciidoc or markdown. But when I started
on this stuff I didn't know about those tools, and maybe the didn't exist
