I understand that. Problem being is editing HTML in a text environment is a 
pain in the butt. There are tools no doubt, but I am to lazy to use those 
just to fix a typo or decribe an new module. Linking to new pages is handled 
by a Wiki automatically. All that make *me* not use it.

They put in the effort. I value their effort. Sorry. I am lazy.

They do not. You argument is still valid.

I want to support *me*. So the editor for the time being. GNUmed should cater 
for the reader. I am not going to. Not much can be done about that unless 
someone else ... :-)

Excellent idea. I didn't think of it until a few hours ago. So now I need to 
install a Wiki locally and produce a html dump. Very good idea. If there 
wasn't my thesis, version 0.2 ... But hey I started so I shouldn't complain. 
None make me put my time into GNUmed. Note to myself: Stop wasting bandwidth.

That's why I like those discussion or flames as some call it.
