Website Concept Documents

Over the past 15 years, certain subjects fundamental to the website have evolved, and there have been multiple documents written relating to the subjects. It is most useful to read these documents in chronological order. So rather than delete the old historical documents, my approach has been to list them in context with the time they were written. For example, under the subject of mountain prominence, older documents introduce the fundamental definitions, whereas later documents introduce concepts like Parent peaks, and then Cell areas. You can trace the evolution of these concepts, because they are arranged chronologically under each subject.
