I am putting myself in position to make more progress on the dining and numismatic imagery article. I decided is was unfeasible to write directly in the blogger interface. So I've moved the text into xhtml and made it available on my personal website. The URL is http://sebastianheath.com/documents/dining2008.html. It's pretty much the same as before with just a few additions, perhaps fewer typos, more of the links actually work, etc.
I link back to this post and welcome more comments, though I will be making significant changes "real soon now".
