I tried Open Office, but it just does not work as good as Libre Office.
To save any issues of learning how to use Libre Office, just make a list i an ASCII text file with the page number and the change to be made.
Ive already spent some time making changes, so unless youre happy to throw away my work, I suggest you wait with updating until you get the document back from me.. I seem to recall that google docs could be worked on collaboratively, but its a bit late for that.

Please include me out of any debate on the matter

More or, possibly, less, yes.

Looks a little dis-organised, but I suppose it must work.
The main difference is that xx_xxx relate to addresses and offsets, while xx.xxx are normally numbers/values. The xx..xxx mnemonics usually relate to sub-values, like bit numbers. It does help that you know what order of value you are dealing with. (Im sure there are technical terms for all this, but Im not a pro. Sorry).
