Version history

-------------------------

Late 1996:
Chris Owen <[email protected]> releases a preliminary version of the HTML, based on an OCR scan of the U.K. edition published by Michael Joseph. Links from the text into Scientology's websites allow a ready comparison between Miller's factual account and the Church's hagiography.

Early 1997:
Chris Owen releases version 1, with most OCR errors corrected.

22 November 1997:
Dean Benjamin <[email protected]> releases version 2, with the help of Martin Hunt, Chris Owen, Dave Bird, David R. Tucker, Martin Thomas, Ron Newman, and John Ritson.

The HTML was cleaned up, and vetted by the weblint program. Navigation buttons were added at the top and bottom of every page. In all important respects, the style and framework established in version 1 was maintained.

We carefully proofread the text against the First American Edition, which was published in the U.S. by Holt. Discrepancies with version 1 were verified by Martin Hunt against the Canadian edition. By spot-checking several points where the U.S. and Canadian editions differ in minor detail, we determined that the Canadian and U.K. editions seem to be identical -- but since none of us had both editions at hand, we never compared them fully.
