Hi again,

If you would like to start editing in the Wiki for me it is ok.

I prepared a section "Easay" at the end of the Wiki to keep it well 
from the Cookbook, which has a quick (aka superficial) question/answer 
style format.

See the end of this page. Ready to edit.

If you want to change position you can always do it later. This is just 
a way to get started fast.
In the Wiki i will keep the link to the final location in any case.

About the booklet, Pharo style, i think a few things:
1] they are great, really, super job
2] they need a lot of work
3] in general, I would not extend beyond HTML/CSS formatting. At least 
not on the first
release of the material.
4] I would focus forces on material correctness before thinking of the 
pdf format
5] If we see the subject is quite static, ie it does not become outdated 
every year,
we can make also the pdf version.
5.5] Wanting to write a pdf version, a decent way of collaborating over 
a LaTeX document i tried in the
past is the software Overleaf.
