The code appearing on that page seems to have some severe quoting damage. I took a look at fixing it, and successfully replaced all of the funny text quotes with regular ASCII ones, but I gave up when I noticed that apparently less-than signs were interpreted as HTML tag markers--it'll be easier just to ask for a non-damaged copy to be attached to the page somehow.
