OK, it is quite clear now, but who has enough rights removing
all obsolete and missleading files from english/examples/
*except* .tex files still needed and included verbatim ?

Timestamps in examples/ still changes, so I'm again puzzled.
I do not mention unsolved problem: which files from
should go to Main/texmf/doc/tlc/pictures/ and then to the CD-ROM.
While comparing 20020520 image and the contents of tldocsouce/pictures,
I got a headache...

Some days ago I proposed the following scheme:
1. all files used during preparation and embeded in .pdf (as well
   as .html, like .tex copied verbatim) can be kept in
   (links from <language>/ -> ../english/examples/ are enough clear).
2. all files *only* needed for .html files should go to
   tldocsource/pictures/ and then safe and sound mirrored in

I'm not so conservative, so after important changes made by Fabrice
(I really appreciate his effort!) I'd like to propose for now:
1. cleaning up tldocsource/english/examples/ *except* .tex files
2. mirroring tldocsource/pictures/ -> Master/texmf/doc/tldoc/pictures/
   only *.gif files really needed for .html version which goes to the 
   CD-ROM (which, in fact, are only used *now*) and please, stop that 
   discussion about gif, png or whatever.
   FP>includegraphics commands are in ../pictures/, not in examples/.
   Since pictures/ contains all sort of files (~17mb)
   it is now somehow complicated.

Anyone involved in tldoc preparation/translation can help? I think
that Fabrice is overloaded so perhaps Kaja can clean that, please!
