I saw that the margin appears to be off now (I didn't see that 
before--looked spiffy!) but I still don't understand how the changes 
I've made caused the minitoc to disappear. It may be some other change 
in the skin that is causing that, although I don't know what. NOTE: I'm 
not trying to allay blame or some such, I just want to understand 
(learn) what happened so I/we don't do it again... :-)

Personally, I'd like to see javascript/jscript removed from the process 
(or at the very least only provide a supportive, non-essential flavor 
to the skin). Someone mentioned earlier they'd like to see the 
breadcrumb moved to an XSLT process rather than executed as a script at 
run-time. I'm all for that sentiment as well...
