  -	     <p>A common misconception is that POI writes Excel files.  POI is the name
of the project.  POI contains several
  -             components, one of which, HSSF, writes Excel files.  The following are components
of the entire POI project
  -             and a brief summary of their purpose.</p>

                <p>POIFS is the oldest and most stable part of the project.  It is our
port of the OLE 2 Compound Document Format to
                pure Java.  It supports both read and write functionality.  All of our components
ultimately rely on it by
                definition.  Please see <link href="./poifs/index.html">the POIFS project

  +        <section><title>HPSF for Document Properties</title>
   	<p>HPSF is our port of the OLE 2 property set format to pure
   	  Java. Property sets are mostly use to store a document's properties
   	  (title, author, date of last modification etc.), but they can be used
  -	  for application-specific purposes as well. Currently HPSF supports
  -	  read functionality only. Please see <link
  -	    href="./hpsf/index.html">the HPSF project page</link> for more
  -	  information.</p>
  +	  for application-specific purposes as well.</p>
  +
  +	<p>HPSF supports reading and writing of properties. However, with the
  +	  current POI release only reading is possible. In order to write
  +	  properties, you'll have to fetch the latest POI version <link
  +	    href="http://jakarta.apache.org/site/cvsindex.html">from the CVS
  +	    repository</link>.</p>
  +
  +	<p>Please see <link href="./hpsf/index.html">the HPSF project
