Yeah, everything is tweakable via "skins" which are a mix of perl and html.  I 
tend to surf using Galeon's "use my own colors" setting so I never noticed 
before ;)  There are other TWiki defaults that I could do without, like the 
list of webs (my company might add other webs eventually but I would rather 
Gambas had a wiki all to itself to avoid confusing Gambas users) and the 
"Offices" link, but I'd love to hear feedback from other people as to what 
other stylistic changes to make.  I'll start by simply making that yellow 
stuff white.

You can also view any page in printer friendly format by adding ?skin=plain to 
the end (the "printable" link at the bottom doesn't completely get rid of the 
headers and footers.)  I plan to make a set of HTML files for use with the 
help browser I mean to contribute, by navigating the entire web using a Perl 
script and appending ?skin=plain to each URL.  The links between all the 
pages should all still be maintained.

The latter would require one line of changed code.  I'll do that this 
afternoon.  Maybe I should list all the symbols within each class on the 
index by category page as well, though that may not be quite so automated.  
Ultimately I may need to break the index by category page into pages for each 
category but maintain the whole index by means of the Wiki %INCLUDE tag.  
That'll be better for keeping stuff categorized (currently every single 
language related page is linked to by the index by name and index by 
category) but for now I guess I'm still figuring out the structure.

I can mark those pages such that they're only editable by the administrator 
group (currently that's just me) but I don't know if I can do that without 
having some Set Variablename = Somegroupname thing on every such page.

Glad you like it, hoping it can form the base for a great Gambas doc system ;)
