Purim Kiddush 2007 (edited)

It wouldn't be Purim without the annual changes to the Purim kiddush. This year, there have been only minor changes to the text, and a number of changes to the document formatting. Mostly, these are attempts to make a closer parody of the evil empire of siddurim, emphasizing some of the bad typography choices they made (can someone explain to me why English is in italics?).

Here's the 2007 version in PDF (for viewing and printing) and OpenDocument format (for editing).

Beyond the more-or-less standard and interchangeable Roman fonts, the fonts used are: Ezra SIL for serif-Hebrew, and FreeSerif for the biohazard symbol dingbat used as a substitute for the 90-degree rotated fleur-de-lis.

If you're interested in liturgical development, the previous versions are: 2006, 2005, 2004.

Should be וּסְקוֹטְלַנְדְּ.

"Lead" (in the introductory story) should be "led".
Thanks. I still can't spell in 4 languages.
