Subject Re: Migration of Manager Ref PDFs to Wiki Format

Your thanks are much appreciated.

Curiously, the post from Scott which you're replying to here still 
hasn't arrived in my inbox. Some kind of screw up on server hops means 
it's currently bashing around some minor island in the Pacific no doubt ;)

Some kind of improvement on the docs would certainly be appreciated from 
my end. To paraphrase Harrison Ford, I might have been able to translate 
this stuff into Wiki markup but that doesn't mean I understand anything 
they say. I'm only pleased to be able to make some kind of contribution 
to the community and can only hope that others will be able to develop 
them into something that might help to facilitate the larger end-user 
base David referred to earlier.
