My only defense Nils, is that we should be leaning on all of this planets 
governments to publish their proclamations in a format that costs the user 
nothing to read, he doesn't need anything but a computer running linux, and 
a copy of LibreOffice.  No "microsoft tax" for a copy of windows, and no 
Mircosoft Tax for a copy of MSOffice.

Cheers, Gene

My views 
Do you think your mother and I should have lived comfortably so long
together if ever we had been married?
A pen in the hand of this president is far more
dangerous than a gun in the hands of 200 million
          law-abiding citizens.
