Things lost in bulk conversion from old site #5
The bulk conversion methods that I used (described in #4) were able to carry over most of the necessary structure and metadata from the old website. But some things that were in the original HTML pages did not survive the conversion process.
I'll divide these things into two categories:
Things Removed from Markdown Versions that Could be Automatically Restored with a new Bulk Conversion
Things Lost from HTML Versions that Can't Be Automatically Restored in Bulk
Please report other things that appear to have gone away in the bulk conversion, so I can categorize them on the above lists. If things come up that can be carried over by tweaking our bulk conversion workflow, we should do that before making tweaks to individual markdown files that would be overwritten by the bulk conversion process.
