Great, thanks!

Just a technical note: in markdown you can define 'metadata' like it's currently done with
the 


title:

I think we can also introduce our own like

mainmenu: core, jpa, jsf

which we can render as menus to core.html, jpa.html, jsf.html

Have not done it yet, but I guess this is possible.

LieGrue,
strub
