Go ahead, I haven't looked at the portal stuff, so I wouldn't know where 
to put it or where to change what.

Do note that I've slightly changed the structure of the page, see my 
previous message (the one with the red colors). For this to work, you 
need to update the files that generate the result.

Summary (do check if I've missed something):
- on the first page (portal.*): I've removed all inline styling of the 
table in the personal area and added an id (personal_area) to the table.

- on this same page I added a link to portal-page.css that only styles 
that table.

- I've suppressed the images in the header, but didn't remove them. If 
you like it like this, remove the images so the page renders faster. 
Maybe you want to add "Cocoon Portal" in some nice font/size/color to 
the header as text.

- I've added <div class="innerbox"> to each coplet (just below the <div 
... class="coplet"> and <div ... class="coplet-borderless"> to get the 
drop shadow working.

- you either have to expand the shadowAlpha.png to allow for larger (> 
800px) coplets or you have to restrict a coplet to a max-width=800px in 
the CSS. However, I'm not sure if max-width is supported by IE.

- I've moved the <div class="coplet-icons"> below the <div 

- I've added a <a href="..."> to the selected tab. That eased up the 
styling of the nav bar.

Oh and do check if there is commented code left in the CSS files, that 
might as well be removed and reduced the file size.

You might want to do a more thorough check of the styling on Windows (FF 
and IE). I've quickly checked that it looked as expected and that the 
hovering worked as expected, but I can't remember if it stayed ok after 

One issue left: the title and navbar fonts are bold, which looks fine on 
Windows, but they look too thick on OSX. If I figure out how to solve 
that, there should be a small update to the CSS files.

Bye, Helma
