Sorry, I simply didn't know about the preferred style in this mailing list. As
a user of gmail I'm used to top posting. Anyway, is the recommendation against
top posting somewhere in the forrest website? I've not seen such recommendation
in the Mailing lists section (it may be my fault). A few lines there
could save Ross
lots of work.

I've not yet looked at the skins code (I'm very busy here too). As I said in
my previous mails:

- in pelt-html.leftbar.panel.xml I've commented out the call to the
nav-section-round-bottom contract
- in nav-section.ft, I've added a template with the same functionality than the
nav-section-round-bottom contract. I've added too a conditional call to this
template: it is called from <xsl:template match='/'> when the condition
<xsl:if test="$nav-section/navigation/menu != ''"> is fulfilled

My patched version is attached.

Thanks a lot for your advices and for your time.
