I wanted to change the wording on the "download" page, since I agree 
with Bruce that nobody would want to use a tarball since subversion is 
needed anyway for downloading the book. But It seems all the changes I 
have made are gone. Unfortunately I had not made a copy of the download 
page. I have a copy of index.html if needed, but I do not want to modify 
it again if somebody else wants to keep it in the previous state...
