There's a chapter in Bio-Tech with loads of them and a handful in Low-Tech and High-Tech. Wouldn't be surprised to see a few more scattered about, so it probably is worth giving them their own index page.

The current 'armor by TL' page seems to have a lot of items that blatantly aren't armour. Is it OK to remove them when I get round to adding the Low-Tech armour?

Sure, go ahead - though put them on the proper page, if they aren't there already.

I'm putting together a spreadsheet to organise all the weapons from Low-Tech. Does anyone know a quick and easy way to get data from a spreadsheet into an easy to paste format? Just grabbing it directly leaves a bunch of tabs between the cells, which then need to be manually removed.

I am using Notepad++ for search and replace. It even allows for Perl regex functions.

Put a sample of the exported text block here within code tags, and maybe I can work something out.

Simply add another column to your spreadsheet in which you combine the the cells you want to use data from.

E.g.:
Code:
A1&", "&A2&", "&A3
for a comma-seperated amalgamation of cells A1 to A3.

That seems to work well.

Do people have any opinions about how to handle alternative names for weapons? For example, a Balisong is also known as a Butterfly Knife. Should that appear as
  • Balisong (GURPS Low-Tech, p. 54 and p. 67)
  • Butterfly Knife see: Balisong
or
  • Balisong (GURPS Low-Tech, p. 54 and p. 67) also known as Butterfly Knife

I'd say go with the former.

I agree with Jurgen, if you don't know the primary name, it will make it very difficult to find if you use the second method.
