First of all, the web site has a very tiny font. Secondly, a lot of
people download from linuxdoc.org. And finally, most people who do visit
the website, do so exactly once, to download the book. Later when they
have a question it does not occur to them to go back to check for the FAQ.
A simple hyperlink reminder would be enough to fix this. I think you
should try this first. If it doesn't work, you can still change the policy
later. It's not like we have a big problem with FAQs that needs to be
solved right now or the list dies. 

God is real, unless declared integer.
