Basically they dissolve the lignin, then compress the remaining cellulose. Spiffy!

Note that putting in a naked URL on an iPad, gets the url line-broken at a hyphen, leading to a busted URL. Not sure what’s deciding to break the line, but making a link to a word works fine.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
