OK.  I've done this and checked the new version into CVS.  It's a quick
hack and it seems to work here.  If it doesn't work send me a private
email and I'll correct it!

Thanks to Jesse for bringing this to my attention by forwarding the
email to me privately so I saw it :-)

Can we go with no capital letters in filenames please - it means that
the book is buildable on any system equipped with openjade or other XML
tools which may not deal well with capitals.

If it's too much work to change it back now, leave it and I'll do it
when I come back.

My DSL connection is being activated on Wednesday so see you then!
