I just ran through the latexplate.tex document and its content is great. The
'article' option of the memoir class still uses \chapter{} and the
\section{} numbering is "chapter.section" not just "section." as with the
actual article class. It also, by default, uses offset odd/even pages. Both
of these are things that a newbie might not understand.

Good Luck,
