Isn't this redundant? I would assume that readers of the Dutch weekly
are able to read Dutch, thus not requiring an English version of the site!

This looks like the program I had once suggested writing, for those
like me who find the database format daunting. Back then, the reaction
I got was that the format was simplicity itself, and that such a program
would be unnecessary. (I even got a confusing explanation of the format,
to which someone replied with an even more confusing answer, describing
various advanced tricks and obscure points.)
I'm sure you'll get plenty of submissions from this supposedly "useless"
As for me, I find I have questions even on this simple form. Can you
explain what the following are:
* Sequence letter (a, b, c...)
* Broken page
And do you really index articles?!?

Actually, they can, but only for a generation or two. (And did you know
that you get a different kind of animal if you cross a male horse with
a female donkey than if you cross a male donkey with a human horse?
Only one of these two--I forget which--is actually useful as a beast
of burden, as the other is not as strong.)

If you mean physically, yes. If you mean whether they are allowed to
do so, there are several places where the practice is severely frowned
