Ooo. I could have a look through the issues of Mojo that I have, see if I can find anything. Unless you're a Mojo subscriber yourself?

If you can give me all the A numbers of the pages, and the U number of the sub that you want to take over, then I can change the editing rights. As you've just left the country I suppose you'll have to hope that there's still time when you get back. smiley - erm

Thankyou, Mina! smiley - biggrin

I've just finished painting most of the house (read: trailer) and my father's arriving from england this afternoon (who I haven't seen since shortly after he threw nyssa and I out of his house in January. smiley - erm).. but I've started reading through the first one and I should have them back within a week, I hope. smiley - ok

Ok! I'm all done subediting this. There are comments on the first line of one or two of the files (to the nature of <!-- all done editing --> for my reference); I'm in the process of editing those out and then the entries should be all ready to have indeterminate things done with them. smiley - smiley

Sorry this took a little longer than I'd intended.. I've been having quite dreadful problems with my dell laptop (I ended up phoning one of their Senior Vice Presidents - who promptly passed the buck to the Dell CEO, Michael Dell's secretary - she's giving me a new laptop, so it's all well and good. smiley - angel).. but.. yes. All done. smiley - run

Changes included.. converting the many many word nonstandardquotemarks into 's (and I'm sure I've missed some.. smiley - flustered), formatting quotes, tidying the guideml, and formatting the guideml prettily. There were a few grammatical things,but I doubt if those are even noticable.

That's great, well done. Let me know when it's all ready to come back, and I'll pass it over to the Editorial team for a final polish. It should make the Front Page - although I haven't been in the office for two days, hopefully things haven't changed sinceI was last in. smiley - cheers

I had to babysit my brother's step-children for a couple of days, but my mother has that pleasure now. smiley - smiley

Thanks for finishing this in time. I've passed it over the to Guide team, so it should be on the Front Page soon.
