Looks very good.
@Bart: maybe we should ask for a Dutch translation. ;)

@Christian: je voudrais bien commander, mais la seul methode de payement semble “PayPal”, que je ne veux pas utiliser … Dommage

Nice! I would also appreciate an English version of your book as unfortunately my broken French is not good enough for really reading books.

Regards,

Frank
