Hi Dave,

It *should* work fine - there are many .htm files in the cache directory, also the layout and files directory. The only thing missing is a nice index page and they can simply mirror the cache directory. The only pages not cached/mirrored currently are download.htm and mirrors.htm as the mirrors-near-you-feature need php.

The design gets created using 4 "template" files, should be no problem to change this. But the only difference I see (yet) is the bigger font size of the top menu, and when we increase this the german menu gets too long... :(

Oh, and Justin, the language auto-selection should work now with Mozilla. To test it you will have to clear your cookies for that server as the script sets a cookie that overrides that browser setting...

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Andreas Grabmüller

OK. I'll see if I can get some time in the week to setup a mirror on one
of my servers so we can see if there are any issues.

Yes, that was always an issue in English. Can you get a shorter language? :-)

Seriously though, the font sizes were increased all over the place,
including the side bars, and the main content. If you haven't hacked them
about too much, it might be easier to try to merge the style sheets and
globals.php.
Regards, Dave.
