This is exactly what I do at the moment - it works perfectly, and one
has control over the execution of the code blocks.

One disadvantage: I have to be sure to have all code blocks evaluated. A
time step in the properties, specifying the lat execution time, would be
very nice...

That would be great - thanks.

Is there a worg page where links to documents created using org are
collected? This would be a brilliant addition!

The final document  looks really great!
