Thanks Dieter.  At the top of each tutorial page is a green box 
containing the sentence "Content is also available on paper." 
"on paper" links to the paper book citation in the Oberon 

Currently abebooks.com lists 0 copies available.  That can change any 
time. Obtaining the paper form is a matter of patience.

Bernhard, your section 
remains in the title page.  Your second papragraph refers to the three 
forms of the tutorial: the paper book, the electronic form in ETH 
Oberon and the pages in the wikibook.

I've taken care to preserve Tutorial content as it was on the ETH Web 
server. Format or style is altered to the extent that Wikibooks 
creates the Contents list of a page according to heading markup.  That 
can be suppressed but in my view the automated Contents is a benefit 
rather than detriment.

MediaWiki allows an account to flag any page as watched.  A convenient 
way to monitor changes.  Vandalism hasn't been problematic.

Criticisms and suggestions always welcome.

Thanks,                         ... P.L.
