Hi Glenn,

My latest Hitlist update.

A huge thank you to Peter Jones who has run the HitList through a URL checker and as a result identified a number of broken links or links which re-direct to new pages. This has prompted a thorough review of the HitList (the entries that I have fixed which were highlighted by Peter as broken are indicated by *PG below).

1) The Google translate "button" had stopped working for many links due to a change in the way that Google Translate works, although many also redirect to new format and still work. All buttons fixed to new format (Algeria, Brazil, Cuba, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Lao, Morocco, Romania, Russia, Spain, Turkey) (*PG)
2) Some general maintenance performed on underlying text file to improved guide/rule lines across page
