1) I have just checked with FireFox and an old Explorer as well as  
with Safari and there is indeed something wrong but, apparently, not  
fatal: If you click on the menu for the page that you are already on,  
you are going to see at the bottom the address of the file on my  
computer, before I uploaded it to FreeMathTexts.org. On the old  
Explorer, you even get a message to the effect that Explorer cannot  
find ….

But if you then click on another link, you will get there and then  
from that other page you can click back to the page you were on.  
Still, I am going to have to ask my expert friends what is going on.

2) In the meantime, I will remove from the menu bar the name of the  
page that it is on. Maybe that's the law anyhow.

3) If you want to have a look at (part of) the Magnum Opus, click on  
"RBA Text" in the menu bar or on "Reasonable Basic Algebra" towards  
the bottom of the home page, that is of the page called  
"FreeMathTexts.org". That will bring you to a page where you can look/ 
download chapters of RBA or the whole thing.

4) I am very sorry about that but, even more than with LaTeX, I have  
no idea what I am doing in HTML and it is a near miracle that FMTo is  
even half working, my expert friends notwithstanding.

Shameful regards
