Some initial listings pages and search; massaging gnarly data

Minutes: 240

Over the last few days I’ve got listings pages building for first and second languages, religion, nationality and occupation. This involved quite a lot of data-normalization and massaging, since the data-horribilities were instantly much more apparent when listings pages were created. Aside from obvious typos, all this data normalization is happening during the build process, so we still preserve the original pgxml files intact. I’ve also got a staticSearch working, and aside from the problem of the rather large download for the titles JSON file, it’s working pretty well. We’ll see how it develops as we add more filters and features.
