The original poster directly requested information on how to harvest 
all the texts on the site, and not on how to make it more 
user-friendly for the Mac. My response was to that, as apparently 
least a few were able to glean.

"Webmaster" is a standard term for a person principally responsible 
for the maintenance of a large web site (one can readily look this 
up on the Web for confirmation). Nothing exotic about it, worthy of 
making a movie about. If this bends the imagination too much, then I 
suppose I could use the more bland "web administrator" henceforth.

Thanks much to Frank Hoffmann for seeing my point and laying out the 
non-issues in detail.
