Let me know when you do. I made some changes to some of the code in places
where I had hard coded formating information so that it now uses CSS. If you
are working with display.pl and display_glossary.pl, there should be no

Good point. No there isn't. It's one less thing that we need to do when the
page is "live". So, I guess it's okay to add them in advance.

Good question. I am planning to make a major jump from the site as it is today

I wish I could help you with that one. It's the same over here. Maybe if we
get the tutorial to a more advanced state then someone like SuSE or Red Hat
will want to include it or some training company will hire us. Well, we can
dream, can't we.
