Re: Exporting the Notebook expression corresponding to a DocumentNotebook

Alas that won't work properly because the notebook that you then
export would have the optoin Visible->False.  Open it and, voila! ...
nothing appears...

But, to take your idea one step further, one could then Import the
notebook as a notebook expressoin, do a pattern matching
transformation on it to change Visible->False to Visible->True and
then re-Export it.

That is a pretty Baroque way to go about it--and for large notebooks
it requires pulling big tings into memory--but it would work.

Thanks,

David
