Yes, probably. We still have the pain caused by spam to deal with. :(
Right now to edit these pages with many links you must have a Zope
user id and password.

No it is not your browser. The formatting was a little strange because
this page used the old HTML page type. To be formatted properly comments
would have to be written in HTML. This is a limitation of the Zwiki
software. But I have just change the page type to allow StructuredText
so the comments should be ok now.

This page

was the result of an early experiment to convert LaTeX to HTML before
we had support for pamphlets on the wiki. The result of the conversion
is one really large page which is very slow to load. Perhaps we should
either do a better job of conversion to HTML (multiple pages) or maybe
just replace it with the pamphlet version?

At least that would simplify the online edit issue. I could also probably
eliminate the ban on links inside pamphlet files since spammers are
unlikely to go to the trouble of editing LaTeX/noweb pages. (There would
still be a restriction in the comments section of the pamplet page.)

What do you think?
