Thanks for performing this translation!

I'd like to add that such a conversion makes it significantly easier for
all parties to contribute changes to the Baseline Requirements. Currently,
the documents are maintained in Microsoft Word with "Track Changes", which
is quite difficult for those who don't use Word. It also makes it easier to
track changes from multiple revisions, without having to look at each
individual red-line document.

Is there any chance that you have a sample PDF or HTML production of this
that you could reference (perhaps adding to the Github), to make it easier
for members to see the final output.
