The glossary is great. Short to the point descriptions. Your definition of a
template has done more for me than any tutorial.  The only error message
that seems to abound, that will plague users who just want to use their
computers, without knowing anything about them is the error message saying
that a given document cannot be opened.  Oh well, Rome, and probably not
even the Bow Bells, were built in a day.
