<h2 id="intro">Introduction</h2>

<p>
These are some fortune cookie files I created that can be used with the UNIX
fortune program. Most of the quotes here are funny, and the rest are such
that I found especially enlightening or could not find in the other fortune
collections.
</p>

<p>
They have been converted to a custom XML grammar, but they may still contain
some conversion errors, or not-entirely-semantic-markup.
