System Variants is consolidated into one table again with source language 
noted in table subheadings.  Visually more uniform and tolerable, to me at least, 
on a small mobile screen.

Footnote 1 has a link to Oberon 90.  Further comments welcome.

> The differences between the latest 1990 version of *Oberon* and its 
> later (1991) superset, *Oberon-2*, are explained in the document 
> titled "Differences between Oberon and Oberon-2" by Hanspeter

The ETH bibliography has links Moe91 and MoW91a to that.

I've taken the liberty of incorporating your sentence in footnote 1.
If you prefer not, please let me know.

Further comments welcome.

Thanks,                    ... P.L.
