Looks good!  How about htdocs/projects/beginners.html, with a prominent
link from the very beginning of htdocs/projects/index.html?  The latter
is our ``web portal'' for open projects.

I have only checked the web side of things, but that looks fine. (And,
Thanks! <g>)

I'm afraid there is no good solution. You could use tables, but this isn't
worth it (in this case). Interestingly, my Netscape 4.76 here doesn't show
these bars (Javascript and Style Sheets are enabled), but we must not rely
on them anyway (lynx, Emacs W3,...).

Apart from the ``this page has moved'' stuff, which is an interesting AI
project of itself (and probably beyond the scope of a GCC volunteer), I
am already doing the second part of the ``Web page work'' section, incl.
detecting redirects.
