Please Note I've just discovered a bizarre flaw in MicroSoft Internet Explorer: if you revisit a link to a PDF file that you've visited before, MSIE insists on recalling the old cached version, even if the file has since changed, and the "refresh" button does not work. The only fix seems to be to go to Tools > Internet Options > Browsing History Settings and select "Every time I visit the webpage." I'll always put a flag here showing the last update and a flag at the top of the PDF file showing last update. If your browser presents a PDF file that's older than what's shown here in the link, you'll know you don't have the latest version. --DB

The Fully Annotated Version of the Index
With all the research notes. Beware that it's not for the faint of heart (400+ pages of 8-point type), but it's in Adobe PDF format and thus is easily searchable.
