This document was recently cut down and summarized by an anon who believed to be two large to put here in full. Although for the sake of the browsers I would like to see tise split up amoung sub-pages, we really cannot alter the document. It is unacceptable to make summarries of documents on Wikisource in general we a looking to provide complete documents. Ask me if you have further questions.--BirgitteSB 11:22, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

I concur with you in retaining the full text, but why can't we chunk it down into sections, just as we chunk down long books into chapters? In its current state, the article is entirely uneditable with the browser edit window (which probably is the editing method of choice of the majority of users). Is there a legal problem? If sectioning is not possible, how about sequential chunking with prev/next navigation, just like individual pages in a file?--GrafZahl 18:03, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
I have no problem splitting it off into subpages.--BirgitteSB 18:42, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
I split the article into sections according to the Roman numerals. I've left the footnotes in the main article. Some sections are so large that they are still somewhat sluggish to edit with the browser but it's much better than before.--GrafZahl 18:27, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
As the original poster (I think I was?) of course sub-chunking it is the best idea, I just didn't have the time to do so, in fact it was a mammoth job to get the thing into reasonably clean digital ASCII format from the original error-riddled PDF to text conversion, so I assumed my fellow Wiki editors would grasp the torch where I had fallen and carry it to the finish line. (I didn't expect that in between time some dork would toss away the torch and susbtitute a Bic lighter). Gzuckier 16:18, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
