More corrections for vols 25 and 27

Fixes in 25 include front matter, and this involved fixing processing of the metadata. I now have it so that it's a bit more flexible and can handle different types of primary responsibility, avoiding some bad hard-coding.

One more review done

Poole review is done; remaining review for vol 27 has some formatting issues, so I'm checking with NVD before I start.

Johnson article done, table rendering improved

The Johnson article included our first instance of column spanning in table cells, which I'd initially handled just by table nesting, but she made a good argument for making it look precisely like the original, so I've now updated the table processing for both PDF and XHTML so that it handles @cols and @rows correctly.

Last article encoded, master volume created

Encoded the whole of the final article in one session, using the style-based search-and-replace method in LibreOffice before moving it into Oxygen. This process is getting much faster, particularly now I have the special browser-based tagging assistant for bibliographies (as long as they're well-formatted coming in). That's now posted for proofing, and I've also put together the master volume file for vol 25, which is currently at 151 pages.

Finished next article

There will definitely be some tweaks require here; the tables are not optimal. But we're good for proofing.

First half of next article encoded

This one had a pretty messy bibliography, and it also has nested tables, which will take a bit of work since we haven't had them before.

Author's proofing corrections entered for Coughlin article

New abstract is a bit long, but otherwise all good, I think.
