	I did suggest that previously. It will not only be good, but necessary,
once we have many articles and many tutorials. Right now, the list isn't
what I'd call "lengthy" but it should change quickly. I thought of
splitting it out into a variety of topics, showing the three or four most
recent articles and archiving the rest to a longer list. The page is
actually ready, but not in formal use because it would have too many holes
right now.

	Now that the format seems to be well set, I thought I'd send out a
template to the various maintainers. You'd pour the text in, manipulate
till it looks right and send it on to me. I'll give it the once-over and
upload it. In fact, I'll do it now. Expect it in private mail...

	I've been thinking about this php3 stuff. While it seems like a good idea
at first, it does somewhat limit the ability to have a variety of article
formats. Given that I already have a "template" of sorts in which we can
pour article content, most of the work is in the "nudging" of text to fit
the look of the site.
