here.  People are not going to scroll too far down that list - maybe a direct link to the
page for translations without all of the choices - or - place a quick link button for Translations
at the top of the mailing list page?

Markdown adds ids for header paragraphs. So a hash tag can easily be added to any link.

> 	2. Items 2, 3 and 4 talk about the means for linking the logo - I really like the yellow
example below this (including the alt!) - could this be placed above 2,3 and 4 as simply 'Here
is a copy/paste link to use.  If you do not use this copy/past link and want to personalize
it further, these are the rules you must follow: (insert 2,3,4)'  I think this would encourage
the copy/paste (with the alt for SEO!)- and it offers an easy copy/paste connection for those
that are not into coding - but want a quick link.

+1. BTW - it is possible to use the Apache CMS Bookmarklet and create a patch. I'm willing
to submit any CMS related patch someone wishes to contribute.

Send patches to ooo-dev with a subject using a prefix of [RFW - CMS]. Good for any contribution
from a non-committer.
