Perhaps those examples should be prefaced by text that says "... assuming
that the current directory contains one or more .lisp files ...".  (The
intent is just to demonstrate that the shell knows how to expand wildcards
and most other programs don't, not to guarantee that the current directory
contains .lisp files..)

I think that the process of replacing the stuff in CVS is simpler than I
thought it would be:

1) disable the cron job that builds the main site from CVS.
2) check the new xml/Makefile/xsl/stylesheet files into CVS
3) add a cron job which builds "newsite" from CVS
4) modify (3) to build the main site, disable the server-side processing
   on the server, retire "newsite.openmcl.clozure.com" (or make it point
   to the main site for a while.)

I'll try to do the first 3 steps ASAP.
