Hi,
do you have this online somewhere where we can check? If you use
the older images/tables compatibility macros, then it should look
the same as previous versions of greenstone.

Also, could you tell us what display problem you are having with the
new CSS formatting? It was mostly developed on Mozilla/Firefox, and
tested with Internet Explorer. If there are layout problems then we
can fix them.

Thanks
