Some general observations:
- if a paragraph introduces something and ends in a colon, then the thing which it introduces shouldn't be on the next page
- section heads shouldn't be allowed to hyphenate and should be ragged right (page 14) --- also they shouldn't turn down a single word --- probably they should be a bit smaller to minimize this sort of thing.
- once the text is finalized, you'll need to go through and eliminate stacks (three word stack on the left of the last paragraph on page 14)
- do we want to use guillemets for quoting in the English language version? I see English quotes in some places, guillemets in others --- shouldn't this be consistent?
- is the huge indent for the footnotes necessary? Just setting the footnote number on a hanging indent would like more even.
- A.Appendices --- there's only one at this time, so shouldn't this be singular ``Appendix''?
I'd strongly urge going back to the Chancery font on the cover since you're already using it for the Chapter Numbers in the openers (which looks quite nice) --- just _please_ find a version which isn't so ``swashy'' for the caps.
