Interesting. Yes, a very different look, somewhat "cleaner"(?)
feeling perhaps, though I suspect a lot of that is probably just
the white background versus the default gray of the Xanalys version.

[Hmmm... The Franz version seems to be missing a few links here & there.
E.g., on page " Constituent Characters", the Xanalys version
contains a link at the bottom to " Constituent Traits", a link
missing in the Franz version -- though both of them do go to "
Constituent Traits" when the "next-in-sequence" button is clicked.]

I like to keep a copy of the CLHS on my laptop for easy reference
when off-net. Does anyone know if the whole Franz version is available
for download (e.g., as a tarball) the way the Xanalys HyperSpec is?
I browsed around the Franz site for a while, but couldn't find anything.
But I admit I could easily have overlooked it. [The "download" link to
"HyperSpec-6-0.tar.gz" isn't all that easy to find on the Xanalys site,
