Small Revisions to Blue Book Encyclopedia Entry

On about 10 September I revised the encyclopedia XML file so that the title of the entry about the Blue Book now reads: Walt Whitman's Blue Book (was: Walt Whitman's Blue Book (1968). I also revised the last sentence of the entry, which began "One can now follow Whitman's advice . . . ." It now begins "Both the print facsimile edition and the Whitman Archive online edition now allow one to follow Whitman's advice . . . ." Both changes were proposed by Ed Folsom.
