I did. Thank you. Because I can't use smgl-tools to include external
files and because I like to keep every section in a separated files,
I added also the M4 macroprocessor.

Now, I upload on the site:

                # faq.html faq-*.html (the html form)
                 # faq.txt (the text form)
                # faqm4.tgz

The archive faqm4.tgz contains a this moment that:

        begin.m4 end.m4 faq.m4 install.m4 intro.m4 lib.m4
        misc.m4 tech.m4

lib.m4 is for internal usage; it contains only the m4_url() macro;
faq.m4 is the master file, and look like:


Any file *.m4 contains a single Chapter of the FAQ. So, if someone
like to add some chapter, he can download the archive, clone an
existing section, and add an new entry in the faq.m4 master.
