An apology to all Polish speakers:
I have knowingly mangled the proper spelling of many Polish names as the fonts available do not allow using all the correct letters. Perhaps some day the miracles of HMTL will also allow proper spelling of Polish names readable on all browsers.
Please note that any mistakes are my own. (Corrections very much appreciated.)
Until then, I hope for your understanding.
