Thanks to Telsa Gwynne and Mel Chua for converting the text version of this HOWTO into DocBook format. Thanks to all the LinuxChix for their usual mix of suggestions, discussion, proofreading, encouragement, and prodding, but especially to Akkana Peck, whose comments are always kindly worded, pragmatic, and invaluable.

Finally, this HOWTO would not exist at all without Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever's excellent books on women and negotiation, Women Don't Ask and Ask for It. I thank them for opening my eyes (and those of many other women) to the realities of negotiation and success.
