OK, I now imported the "rest of the page" and I am working at the
following address:


I also used HTML Tidy to correct most of those 43 parsing errors that
W3C Validator threw at me. And checked manually the rest.

"A new category" I guess you meant? I added a link to the relevant section.

BTW: right now all the emails are in clear and using fixed-font.
I guess we sould either convert them to mailto: hrefs or "hide" the @ in
some way.
I mean: either we decide not to avoid spam in this way (I'm for this)
and do the complete linking thing, or we actively avoid that: I doubt
any spammer that parses mailto:s avoid parsing the text of the page
itself for probable email addresses.

Give me some comments on the whole page, now that I imported all the rest.
It changed appeareance a bit, now that it is valid (X)HTML, but I tried
to emulate the old visual behaviour adding a couple CSS rules.
