"Ellen, I thought I'd got that all the same! Didn't want to make too much of a difference to members (however few there are this slow time of year!). But yeah, you were right. Somehow the main font didnt change stayed Georgia not Arial.…"

"I don't know if all the details will work out, but the idea of categorizing by place is endearing! The important thing is not to force materials at the beginning stage into one category or another, but to see where the natural divisions are…"
