Good stuff. Looked over it, looks good. I don't particularly like
breaking the faq into different files, but that's minor.

The problem is of course that the .dsl files looks very...complicated :)
It raises the bar quite a bit as compared to the HTML markup, but if
people are so hot about SGML, so be it.

I say we do this:
  1. incorporate whatever changes people see necessary in the next few days
  2. push the current HTML FAQ to WineHQ
  3. start the HTML->SGML conversion

With these in mind:
  -- if you have suggestions, complaints, etc. please voice them now
  -- Jeremy, when can we get the FAQ on the site?
