"EXPERT:" Data files, main data file format, and code description

The format of the main data table used to calculate dE/dx and the main html files for AtomicNuclearProperties has evolved with time and is quite clumsy. It is read by FORTRAN using fixed format. The table itself is properties8.dat. A key for understanding the format is Properties8_Key.pdf; it should be followed in adding new materials.

A description of the code, its organization, and running instructions are at AAHowToDoIt_03apr14.

A useful table of properties of elements: summary_prop_table.dat
