It's really very nice! Good decision about the style. It makes lots of
sense to echo the styles of KForge, CKAN, OpenShakespeare, OpenMilton,
PublicDomainWorks, Desire, Eternity, Provide, and ScanBooker. Great work
Nick, not least....

Does it still use moovc.js? :-)


PS Napoleon seems to work ok, although errors are reported in the vendor
libs. But Nietzsche doesn't really show up at all ("C is null" error in
the Simile lib). Using Firefox 3.0.3.

PPS Factlets seem to be presented in isolation to their threads. Just
having a straight list of the threads that involve a factlet might be nice.
