I wouldn't make it a priority, the problem for me wasn't with the viewer 
itself. I only needed to know whether I should ignore the terms that 
didn't display. Your blog mentioned that links don't work, but I hadn't 
yet seen the markdown document so I didn't know what you meant by 
"link." I thought you meant URLs.

Thanks. I know you want the best for us, and you're responsiveness is 
terrific. I may not be typical because my eyesight is poor and I don't 
always notice things. If I need to read through a lot of text to find 
links, I'll miss some. A straightforward list would have helped a lot:

Contribution overview: <link to blog post>
Joining github: <link>
The documentation files: <link to community docs>
Using the web interface: <link to 
contributing_to_docs.md#using-the-github-web-interface>
Using Git GUI software: <link #git software>
Using the command line: <link #command line>
Linking to your LC account: <link>
Signing the CLA: <link>
Documentation Format Reference: <link>
-- etc

For me, this thread would have been a whole lot shorter if that had been 
available on github, or at least a link to it.

Thanks again for your dedication Ali.
