Hi Peter,

I added the compiled html files to the repository and the format seems to
be ok.

There were many format errors with the hyperlinks, lists, tables and
You can check the original converted file Tutorial.rst for reference.
Now most of them are fixed, including the formulas(by using the latex code
in the original latex file).

Another big trouble is the title level inconsistency.
For example, in chapter 15, there are three individual subsections before
the section 15.1 start.
It cannot be compiled through. Now I just change them to the section level
to avoid the error.
Any other solution?

This is the original file converted and is just for reference.
