Maybe you should use a smarter browser? ;) FireFox doesn't do
that to me.
Ok, I added the width and height. Is that better?

It's hard to make changes quickly when things have been around
for a while. I worry about broken links. But when everything is
working nicely, then it makes sense to me to advertize the
changes widely and then set a time limit like 1 month before
removing the old names.

Do you mean decide on "wiki" or "portal", i.e. Plone? I have also
had this discussion with Martin Rubey. I have argued that these
are two quite different web services. The wiki is open and public
while the portal has more controlled access for content creation.
It is possible to create both public and private wiki pages in Plone
and there are other features of the portal such as bibliography,
event notices, etc.
Of course the user interface for the wiki is much simpler than the
portal. So far the portal has not had much use although nearly 60
people have registered to use it. But then again, only a very few
people have even edited any wiki pages. So I guess that's how it
goes in the "collaborative web" :-(
