This page will be segmented when it gets too long.

Add information by clicking on "edit" above. Items should begin with term (if available) and year, together with a letter to allow for distinguishing subsequent documents in the same year and term, and the designation should be in bold, as in this example: H1285 A:.

Text thereafter should indicate what the document concerns. The link to the image of the document should be a copied and pasted full web address (http:// . . .) surrounded by single brackets ( [ ] ), as in this example: []. Leave a line between entries.

The 25-year segments begin with a vertical bar (|) and end with a vertical bar minus (|-). Avoid other more complex codes. If you want to append a translation, provide a completely unique address surrounded by double brackets, as in this example: [[Dartmouth Docs H1275 A Tr]]. Such an address indicates sector and year, the A indicates it is the first document entered for that year and term, the Tr indicates it is a translation. That will constitute a unique address. This will appear in the saved document as a red hyperlink, indicating that it has no content as yet. Clicking on this red hyperlink will open the new document in edit mode.

DO NOT attempt to re-order documents within a term to achieve a perfect chronology, since it will invalidate other references to re-named documents. A document written in Notepad will copy into the site without any complicating code. Avoid more complicated coding.
