Perhaps it can be fixed. I don't know.

Thanks, good to cast other eyes over it.

The site uses CSS so that should be easy to enhance later.
Perhaps the stylesheets/site.vsl will need to add some
extra class attributes.

AFAIK it does not. Specific pages at /dev/ for example
have a manual Table of Contents.

Hmmm, yes i do. There seem to be DOS end-of-line markers
only for text lines within <p> and <li> elements, etc.

This must be fixed because cannot do 'svn add' with such
a mess.

No idea where they come from. The xdocs2/stylesheets/site.vsl
is clear of them.

Would someone familiar with Velocity/Anakia please help.
