Hi Bill. Thanks for posting this. It looks interesting.

By the way, does anybody know how to view this file on a Linux machine? It opens with openoffice by default. The pictures are visible, but much of the text is obscured behind white panels. Is there a better viewer available which is not too hard to install?

OK, I figured it out. For some reason, the old version of OpenOffice that is shipped with my Linux distribution does not quite follow the layout. Everything is there, it is just obscured. Converting to PDF has the same problem. Newer versions of OpenOffice.org hang upon launching. Probably need a newer distribution or machine.

Here is how to work around the problem. Simply open 2 copies of the document. Delete the text blocks in one of them and the images in the other one, or vise versa. Some of the blocks are difficult to delete, so you can right click on them and unlock their binding. They then can be moved out of the way.

Eventually, you should be able to read the entire document.

Phil and Thomas notwithstanding, Linux is a little bit inconvenient.
