Hi all,

I've managed to get two[1][2] property pages implemented so far. I think my instructions[3] are doing ok in terms of following them. I have made a number of changes in the last couple of days, as I've actually tried implementing data into the current CSS property template ;-)

the main pain has been the session bug issue, although it doesn't seem to have reared its ugly head in the last couple of hours. Maybe it is fixed? For those of you who don't know this, basically it's an annoying issue that plagued us in the past where you keep getting logged out after 30 seconds, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, etc. Our sys ops have been hard at work on these in the last couple of weeks. To mitigate any such problems though, I would advise you to always write your text offline first, and then try to put it into the template afterwards.
