Again, thank you for the support. Yes, there are some escaping issues to be resolved. "Release early. Release often." I need help with the graphic design in general.
Here's an enhancement I thought of:
1. allow readers to authenticate
2. allow readers to upload documents
3. documents get saved in readers' cache
4. allow interface to list documents in the cache
5. provide text mining services against reader-selected documents
6. go to Step #1
It would also be cool if I could figure out how to finish the installation of Tesseract to enable OCRing.
