Howdy.  I promised a rough draft this morning of the news.  However, 
Chris sent me a writeup that Carlos had done.  It's better than what I 
did and I'd like to use it.

job of providing useful links.  On the minus side, it won't make for a

links":http://www.links.com/whole/freaking/bunch/of/links.html in it.

reference/footnote syntax in stx?

Or we could simply do it as HTML and let the email just summarize the
