10/10/2006—Darrell added a one-page Appendix A to doc. Because the doc has been released via circular in 03, I gave him the cover, folio, and folio to the new appendix as PDF pages for attachment to CL. I also used changed bars.

Comment circular

 

 

 

 

11/29/2007—Per Kathy’s request, generated PDF for a client she needed to give it to. I stamped it with a Draft stamp. Darrell apparently had sent it out for comment and received none but he did not instruct me to implement the changes.
