To summarize some discussions:
- there seems to be considerable dislike for the current "one-short-subsection-per-HTML-page" layout of the manual. That surprises me, since I've never had a problem with it, but of course I'm intimately familiar with the layout of the manual, so I'm happy to disregard my own opinion in this matter.

- Does anybody _like_ the current layout? If so, speak up now or forever hold your peace. :)

There are two solutions for this:
1)  Don't split HTML by into subsections; have one html page per section.

2)  Merge many subsections.  For example,
6.1 Pitches
6.1.1 Writing pitches (includes 6.1.1, 6.1.2, 6.1.3, 6.1.4, and 6.1.5 in the latest proposal)
6.1.2 Octaves/jumping pitches   (includes 6.1.6, 6.1.7, and 7.1.8)
6.1.3 Rests    (includes 6.1.9 and 6.10)

the names obviously need work.

My preference is for 2 -- I can't believe that users want to see articulations, dynamics, and trills on the same HTML page. But as I said, we should probably disregard my opinion on this issue.
