Right, I was planning on having that changed to say GTK-Doc

Isn't that what I had before when I first updated the GTK-Doc site? It
was a subnavigation block that was grey, but people said they didn't
like it because the page was being "embedded". I think it would be
best to have either a global navigation like it is now or now having
none at all (similar to the current gtk-doc site--having only
navigation links that have to do with gtk-doc specifically)

The title image already gets turned into text when the window is too
small. Maybe you can post a screenshot since I don't have that problem
here. Or try Shift+F5 to reload without using the cache?

And well thank you I am flattered :)

Fixed. The red is now the same color now... But you have to append
?red to the url to see it :P

Okay well it's not my personal web site :) Fixed. I can live with not
indenting that much more than making the headers red :P

Okay I think we should probably wait until it is released first, since
MeeGo is meant to replace Maemo and if we remove Maemo, then we can't
mention the popular N900.

Okay I changed it but it is what you were looking for?

It's no biggie :) And haha I've noticed :P
