This page?

This page is a work in progress... bugs in IE's box model have caused me no end of problems. While incomplete, the page is currently built by a Perl script which formats the human-friendly format into a HTML document. A style sheet defines the visual formatting, while some javascript is used to provide user customization (not quite working yet).
