I'm missing something?  I thought we agreed to not use the Java versions
since they weren't usable by the general audience.  Or are these just for
your practice not for the LIT site.

In a way science pretty well has.  If I remember proberly, virtually all
major scientific pubs are translated and reviewed in english.

Ben, do NOT translate my sections of LIT.  I have enough trouble with
people misenterpreting what I say.  I don't want the hassel of people
misinterpreting what others have enterpreted me to say.  This would be
especially frustrating since comments would come to me in languages I
couldn't understabd or respond to.
