I don't see it now, so either it was a temporary glitch or I was imagining things.

OK. I see three links to it on the main page, but none on any of the report pages. I've not looked elsewhere.

No, I meant if one were to enter them as Sources and Citations, not in the Memos, that TNG would display them somehow. No?

I'm looking at this page: http://www.iansinger.com/root0001.htm#id169
I see in the middle of the first paragraph under person Ian David Singer (170):
"He was in US Army and discharged as an SP4."

Oh, so that that's why the reports look like TMG reports - they are! I used the link in your earlier post in this thread to http://www.iansinger.com. I had assumed your entire site was generated by TNG - obviously not. Now when I get on your TNG site (that's the section I had difficulty with before, and never got on) I see that TNG is providing only the raw data - rather like the two-column layout with raw data in Second Site.
All my earlier comments obviously do not apply to TNG, as I was looking at TMG output, not TNG output. The reason the narratives look like two-dimensional paper reports is because they are two-dimensional paper reports, rendered in HTML. I'm not a fan of TMG's HTML output for that reason. Second Site produces "real" web pages, in the sense that are designed as web pages from the ground up, designed to take advantage of the nature of the web, and not simply translated from paper reports.
