Thanks for the replies everyone - now a different question thrown up by 
If I want to collect together a "library" of problems and solutions and 
other resources from this and other mailing lists that I subscribe to, 
the main one being Libre Office, what would be the recommendations for 
the format and application that would be best to store these in, with 
regard for easy searching and retrieval?
