I have been working on getting navlinks at the top (which will be available
when they get checked in). There was a few comments about retaining some of
the original look & feel, so I tried to keep the top as close to the
original as I could.
Based on your comments and Volodya requesting better "standalone" support, I
have restructured the header to better reflect the new look. I'll be posting
the result later today; I want to have a go at sorting out some of the other
stuff first (like empty ToC's).
