ROTFL - boy I needed that on this Friday. I don't know the ins adn outs of
the system, but I'm wondering if since the faq would be in an xml format, if
it could be put out there as a accessible file. Kind of like exposing an API
(or a web service?)

Then people could take it upon themselves to grab the feed/service/xml file
and build it into something useful. I imagine some people could be pretty
creative with it. You could take the best one and use it as the official
evolt.org version. Just a thought.
