Um, sorry to be a dummy but I've clicked every link I can find on the 
Extension:Interwiki and none has offered me a download. They all go to 
the GIT area, which I am completely clueless about. Also, I should've 
said. I'm using 1.19. Please let me know if you think I should download 
something different than what you recommended below.

Thanks, Alexis.
