 +<span hide><​span hide>jtb 050123: For years I called this the "​Theravada Text Archives"​ . But one day recently I noticed how "​dead"​ that sounds. It sounds pretentious. It reminds me of the dusty basement stacks in a research library where the boring old moldy historical texts that no one actually reads anymore are archived ("​archived"​ = stored somewhere for some as-yet unknown future purpose). ​ These books are alive! They'​re meant to be read! So let's just call it a library.</​span>​
 +<span hide>jtb 050329: I discontinued the individual zip archives for several reasons:
 +
 +1. They haven'​t been very popular, as evidenced by the Urchin website stats (only two ranked among the top 500 (top ~1/3) most popular downloads: atibulk.zip (about #100) and dhp.zip (about #300). We're keeping atibulk.zip. Dhp will soon be available in PDF.
 +
 +2. When a directory is zipped up independent of the rest of the site, the path to the CSS becomes meaningless. While it would be possible to include the CSS with each zip, and to edit the path to the CSS in each of the HTML files in the archive, this would be a pain.
 +
 +3. It's time consuming to keep maintaining (and uploading) the zip archives. The time I devote to keeping them all in good working order as the website evolves could be invested elsewhere.
 +
 +1+2+3 = reason enough to let them go.</​span>​
 +<span hide>jtb 050321: Long-overdue reorganization of the library... What is the significance of the "Other Contemporary Western Writers and Teachers"​ category? "​Other"​ than _what_? Why is Than Ian listed there, but not Nyanaponika Thera? That category is a throwback to the early days, when 90% of the books on ATI were from the BPS, and "​Other"​ simply meant "​published somewhere other than BPS". But "by publisher"​ is a strange way to categorize things in a library. So let's drop the BPS as a category, and give each author equal footing, with a page of his or her own.</​span></​span>​
