For the impatient—
This will take you to ‘Books and Chapters’ on the Topic Summary page. Below each Book title are a few lines of brown text which say it all. A horizontal red arrow (Below ‘A. Preludes’) points to the beginning, and another after the last set will take you to the:
which starts at the ‘Précis of Book A’, with a short paragraph about each chapter. Rightward horizontal red arrows lead to similar précis of other chapters. Downward arrows here lead to Chapter 0; within the chapters they take you to the next section. Carets take you back to a chapter’s Table of Contents.
[Editorial note. Writing began in a word processor with a WYSIWYG (‘portrait’) orientation of its pages, and was put into continuous (non-paginated) HTML format with the help of a wide-screen side-by-side display, with TextWrangler source code on the left and a browser displaying the visual output on the right. The result looks best in portrait mode, especially when there are illustrations on a page. On small screens, one settles for a readable ‘landscape’ view of a portion of a page. Font size should be adjustable from the keyboard, and the space bar should advance to the next ‘page’.]
