09Jun10 Remove nonfunctional BFI link and explanatory paragraph.
15May07 Move 300 dpi version of Table 1 to this directory.
22Jul06 In Index, indicate my Guide is completed and no longer a work in progress. Reorganize the text a bit to give it a better flow and coherence. In Section 2, add an omitted period at the end of the editor's note.

03Jan06 Clean/repair Table 1 a bit more.
01Jan06 Put Table 1 in landscape format. It was sideways in the letter, but it's easier to turn a manuscript sideways to read than a computer monitor. Thanks to Foerd Ames for this suggestion. In Index, say something more about tensegrities with elastic tendons and how they compare with tensegrities with inelastic tendons.
