Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

One thing I couldn't figure out was this (from the explanation of color codes and ratings):

yellow background indicates that the Metadata should be consulted

Where can I access the Metadata? Can I even do so, or does this refer to stuff restricted to paying users? If the latter, are you such a user, and would you be allowed to tell us about what you found there in public? (I would obviously be interested in the February and April 2005 data on Venezuela.)

Might the "metadata" be buried in the HTML source?

?

If you meant that the explanation page would have a link, no. If you meant that the squares in the table would have a link or something, also no - only the same text (consult the metadata) appears if I click on them.

No, I meant truly buried. That would be really ass-backwards, but it's a technical possibility.
