I've updated the HC3.1 trunk - which is what seems to have been used
to create the existing site - and added EOL paras to the main
top-level files:

features
index
news
overview
userguide

These have now been uploaded to people.
The previous files were copied  to the directory feb2008

I've also removed the redirects.

Hope that all works OK.
