Great! :-) (So that's the mysterious word, what I could not find in the 
dictionary. I should have checked Wikipedia instead. :-) )

I agree that's cleaner, but it's extra work. And visitors will be able 
to click on a link which gives no new information than the same box 
again. If everything goes well, eventually we will have all those with 
full page documentation, but until we don't, we can keep it shorter.

Hehe, yep, I also saw the loop when I tried to add it. But now, as you 
also agreed, I changed it to that way:

List page is in the category, as "top" article.
List page content is NOT included into the category article.

Anyway, without these changes the only way to find List of Internet 
Applications was search, which was very frustrating while editing (but 
would also be bad while reading).

I made some more screenshots and added ApplicationBox templates.

While trying the programs I also expanded the documentation a little, 
e.g. feature list to PyFeedRead. So I think I'll work a little more on 
applications pages. (Any comments to that is welcome!)


ps: I am so happy that I deleted Qtopia so I can install this many 
programs now, Om 2008.8 rocks!
