Yay! Thank you.

Looks nice. Mit licensed common css.

I have some local changes here I haven't uploaded (such as writing new
software-side instructions describing how to use Rich's new toolchain,
mkroot.sh, and hopefully a vanilla kernel if that goes in this merge
window), but I can back them out for the moment.

We use server side includes, so the common prefix and suffix of each web
page are in a "header.html" and "footer.html". You've copied it inline
here. I can presumably fix that up too.

+    <h1 id="06-02-2016"><a href="#06-02-2016">April 2, 2016</a></h1>
-<h1><a name="06-02-2016" /><a href="#06-02-2016">April 2, 2016</a></h1>

Huh. I didn't know putting id= on an h1 tag was an option that #anchor
navigation would work with. (I have an old python script that expects
the older format to make an rss feed from header lines formatted that
way, but it should be easy enough to fix up.)

You added <code> tags. I personally avoid "semantic" tags that don't
have a clear descriptive meaning (bad experiences with docbook), but
I'll bow to your judgement here. :)

+    the <a
with that approach</a>

Possibly slightly overzealous escaping? :)

Let me try to merge this and check it in. Thanks.
