In this mini-update we've focused on navigation and not content, since better 
navigation was the top request from volunteers.

A before identify the browser and AT you are using as you report problems. 

Please focus your comments to evaluating these navigation changes which changes 
- New search feature on ToC page
  Caveat:  does not search only the OM, instead searches all of Bookshare Open 
- Pipes removed from chapter links at the very top of every page
- Links in ToC at top of chapters 3 and 4 now link directly to child pages 
rather than simply to links further down the same page
- In Chapter 4 new links were added at the end of most child pages:

  "To the next Topic:  XXXXX"
   "To the next Section:  XXXXX"
- Many non-accessible bullets removed and changed to bolded asterisks

Content changes include:

- "Pages under contruction" in chapter 4 "Proofread a Book" were reduced 

- Glossary was greatly expanded
