Thanks - fixed that.

Yep - that's what I was thinking... but first wanted to just get  
to display correctly before I started mucking with the colors, etc.   
surely welcome anyone with more artistic skills to help.  Also, still  
solved the double right nav problem. (Ideas anyone? Anyone?)

You need to be added to the river-committers group to edit (MarkB --
I just added you).

For those committers interested, sign up for a confluence account at:
and then let me know -- I'll add you into the group.

I also don't believe you have to be a committer to edit the site  
(just have filed
an Individual Contributors License Agreement (CLA)).  If you're  
(and have filed a CLA with Apache) -- please let me know.

The http://cwiki.apache.org/CWIKI page explains some about the  
that takes place (to generate HTML).  There is an autoexport template  
I copied over from openjpa:
You certainly have to be logged in to Confluence to be able to see that,
but you may also need to be the space admin (I'm not sure), so you may
not be able to access that.

There are also css style sheets, etc that I 'borrowed' from openjpa.   
You can see
that stuff at http://people.apache.org/~jhurley

*Absolutely*.  I wanted to get things up and running first, and then add
in that (as well as other stuff).  Getting a "PoweredBy" -like list  
would be
hugely valuable for River/Jini... but I think will take a little bit  
of focused
effort, so I thought we could come back around to that in a second pass
(once the site was up and running).

thanks -Jim
