Yes, it's still broken. The problem is that the document isn't treated as a
'headless' one, even though the template file treats it as such (it includes
its own stuff.) I suggested a fix a few months back (our own webdesign
departement ran into the same bug) but Barry rejected it -- I don't recall
why. Maybe because he was afraid it'd break too many websites out there.
Barry ?
