To the filing cabinet

I have added a rating system.  I thought I ought to do this as some pages are very short and in future some are going to have nothing at all - serving as placeholders just in case.  Ratings are also colour-coded, so readers will be able to tell straight away which pages are worth reading and which are not.  The eagle-eyed will notice that as yet no page merits even a “Good” rating let alone an “Excellent”. Oh well, early days, early days…

Anyway, here are a few more items for filing:
