Hmmm, that looks good. I'd still like to go with a smaller content area
though, which doesn't expand to the complete width of the browser.

I have to admit that I didn't know about the [Include()] macro. 

With the Style from <http://wiki-m.centos.org/> we could use the Tabs on
the Top for a fixed Navigation inside the wiki (Like putting
"FrontPage", "HowTos", "Contribute" and so on into the tabs). Although
I'm not quite sure about relative links in there, so that HowTos will
get you to the english Howtos when you're in the en/ space and get the
Spanish HowTos page, when you are in the es/ space (and so on). So you
will get to the relevant parts of the wiki quite fast and the Navigation
is *always* there in the same place, whereever you are in the wiki
*without* including some Navigation macro in *every* page.

Yes, it is a very clean start page (looks a bit like the "old" Fedora
Wiki starting page, doesn't it?) =:)

I'd still like to toy around with the other style, as that doesn't show
all the wiki cruft to people without accounts.

I think it should be the latter (HowTos/Category/Page).

Yes. But that means that people with edit access across the complete
wiki have to be careful about where they put their pages - and
especially *not* to put them under /.

I'm okay with it, also.
