I had suggested this to Scott also in IRC.  I think the process might
work better (and be less exhausting for Scott!) if we use the Wiki page
as a place simply to outline and make terse notes.  Then Stuart and I
can do the actual "longhand" writing in CVS, and Scott can view the
results at the webtest host to monitor and critique our progress.  This
also keeps Scott from having to learn much about our style guidelines
and cuts down on our workload too, since it's easier (I think) for us to
write straight into CVS rather than convert -> merge (yuck) -> edit for
style.  Just my thoughts, waiting for others to comment...
