Looks like you're one step ahead, or you've got Min one step ahead at least :)

Cheers for the pointers Matthias.

So, what I'm taking away from all this is that I should still work on
my CSS stuff, making it more consistent with the Notebook, but with a
view to having it as a stylesheet for others to add to their profiles,
not as a default. This way users can style their Markdown the same way
they'd style anything else.

Any feedback on the version of the Brief Tour would be appreciated. If
people like the changes I've made, we can tidy it up and add it to the
main examples directory.

Thanks again
