Hi Zachary

Answer for question 1:
The file GSDL/images/style.css is the style sheet for the greenstone
pages. You can change style there or create your own style sheet. An
instruction about how to do it is available at:
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/A_basic_introduction_to_using_CSS_in_Greenstone

Open the style.css file with a text editor. It can be found that the
banner titles and collection title have been set to lowercase
(text-transform: lowercase) as default. Setting the value of
text-transform to "capitalize" will capitalize the titles. A related CSS
info is at: http://www.w3schools.com/css/pr_text_text-transform.asp.

Answer for question 2:
Open the file Greenstone → etc → main.cfg in a text editor.
Locate the macrofiles list:

# The list of display macro files used by this receptionist
macrofiles tip.dm style.dm base.dm query.dm help.dm pref.dm about.dm
document.dm browse.dm status.dm authen.dm users.dm html.dm
extlink.dm gsdl.dm extra.dm home.dm collect.dm docs.dm
bsummary.dm gti.dm gli.dm nav_css.dm usability.dm
...

Change the text "home.dm" to "yourhome.dm". Save and close the file, then
restart the server. The yourhome page will be displayed instead.

Quan
