I have completed the rewriting and updating of the WG to 5.4.
The ODT files for the chapters, and the front and back cover PNG files, are in

Olivier: These files are ready to be "cleaned". I know there are some
issues with the labelled figures, for which my apologies.

I have compiled the full book from the chapters and am in the process
of checking the result.

I will put the full book file on ODFAuthors, and everything (ODT and
PDF) on the wiki as soon as I can, probably in the next day or two.
I'll let you know when that is done.

I incorporated many of Cathy's edits in Chapter 1, but very few in
Chapter 2 (which I have moved to be Chapter 20). I agree with almost
all of her suggestions, but I lacked the time, and in some cases the
knowledge, to implement them in this iteration of the book. Also, I
think a lot of the changes she suggested for Ch2 should go into the
Help (from which much of this chapter was copied) and/or into the
corresponding chapter in the Getting Started Guide. And lastly, I've
cut out quite a bit of the chapter completely, or reduced topics to a
paragraph, and referred readers to the Help or the GSG.

I seriously hope someone will follow up on her
suggestions, and indeed I will try to incorporate as many as I
can in Writer Guide for LOv6. It's always a struggle between doing it
better and getting it done before the book is thoroughly obsolete, and
I really dislike not being able to follow up properly on a good,
thorough review.
