Formerly, there was only one version available (with notes). To not 
include notes, you would have to specifically exclude them or be too 
lazy to do a proper conversion of the text. Now it looks like they have 
taken their Word docs down from the site--I'm not specifically sure why. 
Maybe it just moved, and I don't see it.

Sure. There are some email addresses on their website too.

It really is maintained in Word. I guess it made sense at the time they 
started translation, and I'm sure it suits their translation process 
fine. They also have PDFs, of course. ;)
