Done, thanks.
I changed the definition of \var to be just \tt, since I don't want it slanted.

Btw, what's the difference between \emph and \textsl ?

Good. Many are now fixed.

The just-announced web page 
<http://www.erights.org/talks/promises/paper/index.html> now links to the .eps 
files as well. It also links to stale-src.zip, which contains a stale snapshot 
of the directory. I'll only be updating this once in a blue moon, or if we 
make a change to something that's not obviously an in-development source file.
