That's a fine answer.

Hm. I don't mind falling back to 0.20.3 in theory. I just tried running 
the version I checked out of cvs, and found a bunch of problems:

* some stuff I'd asked to have centered is left-justified (perhaps all 
  centering is broken; I didn't check)
* some spacing between lines is way too big (padding? margins? I didn't 
  check closer)
* a graphic I include is rendered way too large
* most relevantly, the zero-width spaces are rendered as hash signs

I assume these are just problems which are going to be worked out before 
the next release, and that I should just fall back to 0.20.3; but if I did 
something wrong (like check out HEAD when I should have checked out a 
branch), please let me know.
