As Jesse has just pointed out to me...

12:42 <@HIghoS> markh: ffile-root and hfile-root, why?
12:42 <@markh> HIghoS: so we can point to patches via ftp and http
12:42 <@HIghoS> Wouldn't it make more sense to just use ftp-root or
12:42 <@markh> possibly ;-)
12:42 <@HIghoS> I know.  But ffile and
12:42 <@markh> yeah
12:42 <@markh> ok
12:42 <@HIghoS> Not very descriptive :P
12:42 <@markh> But I'll have to play with it all again when I redo the layouts
12:42  * HIghoS chuckles.
12:42 <@markh> which is next on my list
12:43 <@markh> this htmltidy thing was first, it's bugged me for a while
12:43  * HIghoS nods.
12:43 <@HIghoS> markh: You are going to change this thou, right?  (the ffile/hfile? :)
12:43 <@markh> yeah, when I sorts out the layout
12:43 <@HIghoS> I've just been reading+deleting my (b)lfs-{dev,book} e-mail now.
12:43 <@markh> I realiased as soon as I hit cvs ci that it was a bad name

As I mention here, I'm looking at the format of the -intro.xml files -
I'll get back to you all on that soon when I have some example
alternatives put together.  (Obviously there'll be a vote on it)
