Good work -- that looks better than what I was working on.  A few things:
1) Don't you think the LORs should be displayed from newest to oldest on 
the page?  As in, the (newest) LOR with the highest ID number would be 
displayed at the top of the page.  This seems to make more sense to me. 
  This would make the current #1 be #6.
2) You should probably mention that line numbers may vary slightly (due 
to further commits).
3) Why not put links to the threaded view as well?  Granted, for just 
one message it might not be all that useful.  To get the threaded view, 
click the (Messages sorted by) thread link.  For LOR #4 this would be 
these two links:

Thanks for the doing this!  I was trying to figure out how to format 
mine, but last week my users decided it was necessary to open a 
suspicious attachment again...  It's amazing how people will spend tons 
of money on antivirus software but refuse to exercise common sense.

If you want, I'll help you keep this up to date.  Contact docs@ to see 
about putting it up on the main FreeBSD site.  I'm not sure where it 
should go, but I'm sure they can figure it out.

I'm glad someone around here gets things done ;-),
