Reuben Thomas is not a co-author of the Gentle Introduction, although it 
looks like he's had something to do with the HTML rendering of it.  John 
Peterson would know more about that but I think that he's off-line for 
awhile.  In any case, the non-HTML versions should all be consistent, 
with Hudak/Fasel/Peterson as authors.  I really don't know much about 
the HTML version, except that it's handy to have on-line :-)
