I think the confusion is my fault. I assumed that you (if it was you
who originally used the word "wikibook"... it's been a long day) meant
wikibook as in the Wikimedia Foundation Wikibooks site, but it seems
you meant it as a generic term instead. Sorry.

I think if you're going to do that, you also need to copy the
cross-reference headers, and I don't know if Gmail lets you do that.
(I gave up on trying to make that work, and got out of digest mode :-)
