I can only agree with David that it's all excellent!

On the wiki-technical side you might want to

* Put the index at the bottom of every page into a template.
   Just do this:

1) Put the code {{Shemspreg index}} before the index section
    on one of your pages.
2) Copy out the index section.
3) Hit the Preview button.
4) Follow the link to Template:Shemspreg index which
5) Paste in the index section into the edit box of the
    template page.
6) Replace the index section on each of your pages with
    {{Shemspreg index}}
7) Now if you want to change the index you just have to
    change it on the template page and the changes will be
    visible everywhere. There will be a link to the template
    in the edit view of every page that uses it.

* You might want to change

   *Introduction to [[Shemspreg]]


   *[[Introduction to Shemspreg|Shemspreg]]

so that the rendered line looks more like the other lines of
the index.

* You might want to change the opening line of your
   tables into

   {| class="gridtable"

so that the grid lines become visible. They aren't otherwise
in Firefox. You will also get your header cells shaded and
in a sans font. If you don't like that try

    {| class="bordertable"

which is a lot less intrusive. I find that on a web page I
generally do want the cell borders to be visible, and if I
wan't them less intrusive the best way is to make them a
light color.

I'm a sucker for tabularization and listing generally,
which may have something to do with my particular vision
problems. Other people's preferences can, do and should
differ of course!
