I already have an index of authors of introductions, so there's no reason
for you to duplicate it. I also asterisk those introductions that were
written specifically for the ML as opposed to being reprinted from a
previous edition of the work. I'll be happy to post it on modlib.

Subject: Couple of new ModernLib projects to announce
> There are several new projects in the pipeline here at ModernLib World

> Guide on ModernLib, so Book Notes will also include first edition points.
> Eventually there will be Book Notes for all titles. This will take quite
> a while for me to finish, of course -- there are many hundreds of titles
> to deal with! As I do them, notice will appear on the ModernLib Change
> Log page (http:// www.modernlib.com/General/changeLog.html).
> Here's a link to the general template I'm using:
> Of course, entries will be individualized; items that don't apply won't
> be included.
> And here's a link to the first applied template example:
> NOTE: This is a member's only feature, but anybody can see the templates.
> Your feedback is solicited on the template - am I missing anything?
