yes, either Kasper or you, thank you for the offer.
{Maybe you can "talk" to each other and decide?}

Format: Unless both of you know 'texinfo' (which I assume is not the
case), I think you should just use html.
And, as a next step, you should have it available at a web
location, and only post the URL instead of the whole document.
{Adding a date to the doc would help to keep corrections /
 updates current}.
