Yes, that's a problem with how the wiki handles table tags from the code.  I 
started going through and converting them to Wiki tables last night, made it 
through all of the "Language concepts" pages but I'm sure there are lots more 
where that came from.

Apart from that, to use automatic table of contents generation (on the pages 
with more than one item on them) you need to use the H1/H2/H3 etc. tags and 
it wouldn't surprise me if H1 used quite a large font on some people's 
browsers.  On mine it's like a 20 point font but I'll try to check them out 
on some other browsers.  (I don't really have access to IE here for example 
though.  I guess I could try to run it through Crossover.)

Conversion errors.... I didn't realize it at the time, but in the wiki to make 
something italic you need (space)_something_(space) and there were a lot of 
errant HTML tags in there which screwed that up.  I deleted all those with 
some more regular expressions last night but again I'm sure there are more 
examples of that and I'll have to find them manually.  Or anyone who finds 
them can correct them ;)  Though probably not with the component class 
symbols since it seems I'll be generating them from Benoit's documentation 
for the foreseeable future.

Well, that VB DIFF thing will be entirely manual and requires someone with 
expertise in both VB and Gambas, so you're welcome to start doing that.  I'll 
try adding a (name of page)VBDiff link to all the pages at some point (I'll 
post and email you when I have) and you can start clicking on them and 
creating pages for those differences.  Eventually maybe I can turn those 
links to %INCLUDE statements with entries in the table of contents for each
