      I ran across a long thread discussing documentation from around Feb 2013
      where this page was identified as having missing lines. I realize this is a
      volunteer effort. And I do appreciate the efforts and amount of time people
      put in. Even though I have been fooling around off and on with mh for
      years I am still very much a novice. There seems to be much discussion on
      the list about how to properly document things. From my point of view what
      is needed is very basic information about how to do basic things (like my
      recent request for how to set up a new serial item. I got an excellent
      response btw) Although some have suggested throwing out everything and
      starting over I think that would be a disaster for getting new people into
      the project. My biggest fear is that the old information will go away. I
      find I refer to the older stuff the most and some of the newer stuff seems
      to leave out some of the details a newbie might need. I would like to
      contribute what I can by writing up detailed info on how I got different
      things to work.

      I don't know how to fix the issue in the OP (but would be willing to give it
      a shot with some info on how to do it - it may be easier than cutting and
      pasting all the missing items in this post...). I do see that the page is
      ok on the internet archive in the last 2012 version. The missing titles are
      below. All the information seems to be in the page farther down, just some
      links in the beginning index are missing.
