I feel your pain.  We need to do better.

There's a separate page for the patterns working group, but when you go
there all you get are a bunch of confusing HTML frames and senseless UML
diagrams.

The HTML guidelines used by the FSF are very helpful; perhaps we should
use them as a model for making improvements.

No, but communicate this to Ed Colbert -- he's the WG chair.  Brad
Balfour and Joe Tallet set up the page initially; maybe we can get their
help too.

Just a simple-to-use, easy-to-understand web-page.

You're very welcome.  I've only got about 7 more patterns to go before
the whole book is done!  I'm working on the command pattern now, and
it'll be done in a day or two.
