Credits, stats and other pages updated.
I used jira to create XHTML versions of the OCRed volumes, and integrated the results into the existing search; it now seems to work pretty well, so I pushed it to the live jetty.
Finished and tested the XSLT from yesterday; SMK will check results before we hard-run it and change the data.
eXist died during XAR upload; had to restart and monkey around.
The headers for the translation itself were appearing at the bottom of a page in the PDF. I set up a special case of
div0[@type='NewPage'] which the XSLT now handles to force a page-break in this case. Republished the XAR.

CC rewrote the About page, which prompted me to fix those site pages in their XML format rather than continuing to maintain them in HTML. The whole dataset is now TEI.
Today I blew up a couple of the apps and had to restart them, through doing this the wrong way. When you have a new XAR to deploy:
