It's 11.4.15, "Rendering", since it's a rendering hint and not a valid
textarea attribute:


Firefox doesn't seem to load the single-page version acceptably for
me.  Chrome is fairly slow -- especially if I accidentally do
something that triggers reload of the page -- but mostly usable.  If I
want something that's really responsive, I resort to wget | less --
and searching through the whole text for a string once it's loaded
into memory still takes a large fraction of a second.
