Each page, currently in HTML, is approximately 1-2 printed pages of content, with headers, titles, tables, formatted text, and variable spacing.

Both will be provided, though the creative commons license will need to be updated for each page. Note: The wiki language used is the standard wiki markup language, commonly available from Wikipedia.org.
