Thanks for the suggestion, Pierre.

I'll put it on the list of things to look at if and when I give up on
Moin-moin. I wanted to go that way, as it seems the closest thing to a
'standard' python wiki.

I've gotten it installed, but am having some real grief with css. css
support is working on MS IE, but broken for Mozilla Firefox 1.0PR :-(

I've got an outstanding request for help on the moin-moin list. I did
try Irmen de Jong's suggestion to go to IRC (which I'd never used before
-- a real newbie for you!). However, at the moment, I'm out of town
(happy Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend!) so I'm stuck with a
1$/minute dial-up. Makes IRC a non-option.

So, if anyone is still following the thread and knows about why css
might work with IE but not FF, I'd love to hear about it!

Best to all,

Brian vdB
