That's where I got my source material. There's html and TIF's, but the html is
wacked OCR of the TIF's and on RTSI there's only a TIF of the first page of any
given chapter. At any rate, I did get the pages I needed.

You know it! Don't know which version(s) I'm working with, but it looks like
the scans Dave Kelly sent me are correct... if you make your eyes all watery
and squint and focus three feet behind the monitor, it looks just like the
OCR'ed html version! ;-)
