If there are then they can speak up if need be.
Best that you just get on with it. As i said, do it
in small stages. In that way everyone's SVN stays
up-to-date and your changes are merged with theirs.
If it is left too long, then that is more difficult.

As before.

Hmmm, i thought that your issue report was saying
that you had done some tweaks and now it looks
better for you.

There is something strange happening then.
Perhaps browser related. ... testing: yes,
that was using Mac FireFox, different on Safari.
I will try some other tests later today.

Nope, this report was on an even bigger resolution
screen than yours.

Start there, but there are other things involved, e.g.
some CSS is generated by forrest, so you may need to
look into the xslt and sitemaps. Concentrate on 'pelt'
and 'common'.

You would learn a lot about forrest mechanisms by
following the processing.

Personally i would not worry too much about this
MOTD layout bug. It would be better to concentrate
on the overall CSS cleanup for both the existing
"skins" functionality (but only pelt) and the new
"views" functionality.
