Pretty good looking. libgnomeprint - is this created in openoffice?

Two points though - could you move some headings to the next page? They look ugly if a heading is the last thing on a page. And then enable PDF optimizing to get smaller size.

I've always been curious why anyone would replicate data in two or more formats.  It seems to me you just increase the maintenance effort.  I would think, once the TC Wiki is functioning, this information would be available there and only there.  If not, how do we identify the definitive copy?

For PDF lovers, I understand, but any offline copy of any data is in danger of lack of currency.

What we probably need is a document store that copies everything viewed to local storage (terabytes are starting to be much more than I can ever imagine using for my necessary storage) and then checks for currency whenever we are can access the definitive copy.

I have created a pdf with a spanish translation of the getting started, perhaps could be a good idea make an entrance in the wiki for tiny core documents in other languages. I make this document with openoffice and if someone want it in other format I can try it.

you can find it in:

Hope it's usefull
