UK FAQ, v3.24

i have just released a new version of the uk faq, to CTAN and to the
web.

this release offers 3 new answers, and
                   20 revised answers
(one answer from the previous release disappeared after its contents
-- a list that had shrunk to one entry -- were merged into another
answer).

for details see the file CHANGES-3.24 in the distribution (the ChangeLog
file, which contains jiffy notes of each editing operation, is also in
the distribution directory).

Users may view the package's catalogue entry at
  http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/uk-tex-faq.html
or browse the package's directory at
  http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/uk-tex-faq/

The catalogue entry will change (somewhat) overnight tonight.

i have also updated the "interactive" faq, at http://www.tex.ac.uk/faq
