Many thanks to all of you for this information...I will discuss it  
with Steve.

I suspect the best is to keep it up, but maybe in Anny's case, in  
French-Switzerland, changing all the links so that at least new  
people will go to 1.5 instead of 1.0...

I agree it is confusing to have both, but they are needed for a  
reference sometimes...
