Hi Frank

I said it was generated from asciidoc in my first post :-)

The reason for that is that it was started a long while ago when there
was no mention of the wiki, I just finished it prompted by the recent

It is normal for wikis to link to material in other formats, fully
formed HTML, PDF etc.  A quick look at the docuwiki manual (when
desperate RTFM) shows that it handles lots of mime types but due to
security risks HTML is disabled by default.

@Enrico, So I guess the question is how do we handle that?  Do you
want to have to give people HTML upload permission individually giving
you more work, or do you want to keep it disabled.  I can easily
provide the document in PDF.

Or I can provide the source in asciidoc, if someone wants to convert
it to docuwiki, but I'm unlikely to do that.
