Subject Re: Proposed Welcome Portlet
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2005 18:16:59 GMT
Yes, spelling was never one of my strong points.  Would you believe that 
I did spell check it?  (unfortunately cam is really a word  ... and 
after years of getting it wrong I think I finally remembered the 
difference between "it's" as a contraction and "its" possessive). :-) 
Please let me know if I missed something else.

There's another updated version out there (some text, font changes) in 
case anybody wants to provide any more last minute changes before I 
create the patch.  I'm still missing the "powered by gif".  Of course it 
can continue to change even after that.
