Congratulations! This looks great!

In case this is a simple Pier setting ... you may want to take a look 
at how the online Haskell book is set up. It allows comments on the 
level of every paragraph, and it seems to have worked quite well (in 
terms of contributed comments & suggestions).


jQuery section might be a good idea in some updated version.
