I would like to thank the project initiator, Ambjörn Naeve, for the support he has given me during the writing of this article, and for making it possible at all. His high philosophical demands has driven not only the process of contructing this work, but also the whole design it describes.

An important part has of course been played by Matthias Palmér, the co-designer of most of what is described here, and main designer of some. His comments have been worth gold.

I also want to thank CID and the people involved in the Garden of Knowledge project there: Bosse Westerlund, Hans Melkersson and all the others, who work intensely to give the project the cross-disciplinary form it is intended to have.

Lastly, I want to thank Linus Torvalds for giving us Linux, as well as the whole free software community and the GNU project for letting me use a superior SGML/XML authoring environment.
