I'm willing to help proof. (As an English teacher I proof-read stuff all  
the time.)

On the subject of code, however, I recommend a simple pre-processing step  
that extracts the code in some way and actually executes it as part and  
parcel of building your web page. If the code fails (unexpectedly, that is  
-- use eunit or something similar as your test engine to help with expected  
vs. unexpected errors), your document simply doesn't get published. This  
is, apparently, how the code in the Real World Haskell book was done and,  
so far, I've not found any code errors in that book -- something positively  
shocking in my experience.
