I'm not sure how to interpret this, but I have changed the text color so
it should be more obvious which tab is selected.

This has now been addressed.

I'm sorry but I don't understand the criticism here. Could you
elaborate? or maybe your browser displays something I'm not seeing.
Perhaps a screenshot would be helpful.

Assuming you mean the ToC links, I have made them more visible now. Hope
this addresses the concern.

I frankly found it too flashy in the end (even though I originally
created them that way)...a matter of taste I suppose :)

The CSS is there for people to change if they can come up with a better
color scheme (css/tabs.css) :)

I have addressed this issue now, it should link to the very top again.

I'm assuming you mean the footer is _not_ always visible now. I don't
think that's a real issue, and I don't think we make use of an 'always
visible' footer in many places.

I hope this addresses your concerns.

With regards,
