CSS for Print session at rather short notice; i don't think it was
recorded, but several people asked about the full course. Here it is.

Venue and Dates

Not yet final; will depend on how may people respond. So if you might
be interested but are not sure, contact me sooner rather than later,
and let me know where and when would be your first choice.

I have likely venues in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, UK; if any
of these definitely don't work for you, also let me know.
