Sir Howard Vincent's Police Code

I've put my first draft of Sir Howard Vincent's Police Code on my site. For those who didn't see my previous posts, it's basically the 15th (1912) edition of a compact guide on how to be a London policeman, and the basis of the codes used by all of the UK's police forces, and many Commonwealth forces. It should be useful to anyone writing about the UK police in this period:

I'm still working my way through the index - for some reason a lot of the page numbers were missing or jumbled, so I ended up deleting them and am working my way through the entries, adding the links manually by reference to the book - I've done A and B, I'll upload again when I have a few more letters done.

I'm sure that there are still lots of OCR and formatting errors etc., if you spot anything that looks wrong please let me know. Please don't post links to it on other sites for now, I'd prefer to fix any problems first.

later - index now A to D. And so to bed, I think...

Later still - so much for bed... now tested under Opera, Safari, and Firefox on (respectively) my PC running XP, my iBook running OSX Tiger, and my netbook running Mint Linux. And it all works, despite large variations in screen resolution etc., including the bits that had to use tables etc. Pleased (and a little surprised), and now REALLY heading for bed!

Next day - also OK under Internet Explorer 9 and Google Chrome under (spit) Vista.
