Per your request John, attached is an rst version that I think should 
work. I got it to build in Sphinx with only one warning about this doc 
not being in the TOC tree. To the best of my proofing, I think that all 
the links work, but ...

I used Alan's link as a starting point for the translation, and got to 
learn a considerable amount about string encoding (thanks to Gael's name 
it seems). html2rst gave me a useful starting point, but still left me a 
great opportunity to learn much about ReST. The program did a great job 
with many parts, so I presume most problems arose from problems with the 
original html.

Anyway, it was a good lesson for me and I hope the file will be helpful 
for others.
