Hi Chris,

I edited "The basic language, with its lexer" somewhat and I am
attaching a .html file. This is simply spelling/grammar editing and not

It includes a few small changes to things like - ending a sentence with
a noun and starting the next sentence with the same noun, clarifying
some statements, not using "and" too many times in a sentence...little
things like that.

A simple diff should show the changes. Please let me know if this format
(ie. html file) is acceptable for your use. I don't think I changed
anything too drastically, but please let me know if I took too many
liberties. You may also tell me not to be so picky, if you like ;)


P.S. Good work. This is a well written and much needed tutorial.
