Sure, no problem. How about a credits entry in the details tab? As for 
the sources, this is not so easy: While some descriptions - mostly those 
for the units - are copied to various degrees from wikipedia, others 
have been assembled from misc sources, like articles I read, 
websites,... but then in effect written from scratch. I don't know 
exactly anymore which bits of information are coming from which sources 
and didn't find it necessary to declare that in detail.

Surely I could trim them down a bit, maybe rewrite some parts. I'll have 
to read through the texts and consider which parts are unnecessary. Do 
you have any more proposals regarding this, what to change and how?

I'd appreciate your help both with the original text and the translation 
very much. Although I'm more interested in programming, I will spend 
some time to work on the German translation file too. In fact, I've 
already translated everything that is new to this version, except the 


`Experience is the best teacher.'
