Thanks Bert for that advice with the remote .css file includes. I already
changed the CSS by myself but switched back to your styles now and linked
them directly from w3.org. That's much better, so you can change anytime the
look of the translation if you like. I will keep the problems today in mind
for the upcoming arabic pages, done by an egypt friend of mine.

Regards, Axel
