Gee. I kinda prefer ours. Doug. What didnt you like about the nav bar?

# reduce number of forums

Done. I've also fixed Thomas' how-to-contrib doc to refer to the new forums. I dont know if there are other wikipages 
that refer to the forums. 

# remove “for QNX employees” section of forum description
Done. 
Re: Steve's notes from the wiki review  
The problem with the nav bar is that it is formatted as a table, and when the page is too narrow the 2-word entries 
format in a funny way.  They are forced to line-break between the words, and the two words then don't line up properly.

I notice that the bar has this formating problem on the developers page (http://community.qnx.com/sf/wiki/do/viewPage/
projects.core_os/wiki/OSDeveloperInformation) and the OS tech page (http://community.qnx.com/sf/wiki/do/viewPage/
projects.core_os/wiki/OSTech) but not on the home page.

The reason for this is that on the home page there is a leading blank, which causes the line to be formatted as a normal
 paragraph instead of as a table.
Re: Steve's notes from the wiki review  
Thanks. I think i've got them all fixed now.  
Re: Steve's notes from the wiki review  
The problem still exists for the project home page and the Source Guide wiki page.  I will correct the latter.  How do 
we change the project home page?
Re: Steve's notes from the wiki review  
I fixed the project page. One needs admin priv to edit that page. I havent figured out how to give admin privledges to 
others yet.
