Hi!

First of all, I fully understand that this discussion is OT here. If you want to 
move it to pgsql-www, then approve my subscription to it...

OK then. I'll checkout the pgweb code and move all common HTML to header and 
footer files. I'll send the patch directly to you.

I don't see how moving all the common HTML code may interfere with adding 
whatever translation code, so I guess these are two separate tasks.

When the HTML is duplicated no more, I'll propose a patch along the lines of the 
mock-up I posted.

Are these "kinks" documented anywhere?

Sorry, but my tone worked wonders. When people (me included) just posted 
suggestions, they were safely and comfortably ignored. As soon as I used the 
appropriate tone, I got most of the anwers I needed...

I also understand the meritocratic nature of OS development, so will now just 
shut up and do the patch I mentioned.
