Not really DOS based

This is a minor thing, but the home page refers to Pauthor as a "DOS-based command line tool". You should really remove the words "DOS-based" as this project appears to be written using .NET and thus couldn't possibly run on a DOS system. DOS applications are 16 bit applications that can run on systems where Windows isn't installed much less the .NET framework. The x64 versions of Windows won't even run a DOS application any longer (the x86 versions can still run them in a so-called DOS box). Pauthor appears to be a command line application, but not a DOS-based application.

 Good point.  The intention was to say that it works in the DOS command line (as contrasted BASH or some other UNIX shell).  I'll tweak the language to make that clear.
