Sorry, but some people don't care to read plain text with page after page of 
copyright and disclaimer info in front of it. 

Wikibooks plans to host many public domain texts; basically anything in the 
public domain you would expect to buy in a college bookstore or find in a 
university library. But our focus is on adding value to those texts by 
wikifying terms to point to Wikipedia articles and also adding annotation in 
the "margin" (a feature that is being worked on for Wikibooks).
