Hi Trevor, this looks great, I love this discussion page. What's also really cool is the notification of the most recent disussion in the sidebar. That rocks.

Hi all. Hope you're ok with my slight modification of the "Pages So Far" List. Does anyone know how to create columns to tabulate the pages so far with a column for each "section"

Hi Declan, FWIW I'm ok with it. You may want (when you've got a spare week ;) to look at OPML, a file format developed by Dave Winer (www.scripting.com) Amongst other things it's a way of categories web pages on the internet. On his front page there's a sidebar with a directory structure. To cut a long story short, OPML is the way we can create Window's Explorer on the Web

Followings Trevor's use of HTML on the R Souls page, I thought I'd learn some HTML and have a go at reorganising this page in line with Declan's comments - hope nobody minds. Over time, I think we should move the Working Party section further down the page, so that the focus is on the content and encouraging others to contribute.

Fantastic! I agree the working party section should gradually fall down the list (or perhaps be moved to a seperate page entirely?).

Thanks Nigel, that's exactly what I was trying to do!
