Oh yes, I get those navigation elements, so you've no worry there :-)  I
didn't state it very clearly: I meant that you have adopted a page
navigation style that is non-standard for web pages, but more a standard
for user-guides or howtos.  IOW, you break from the paradigm of web
pages and exhibit use of a 'linux-centric' navigation paradigm that will
fool and irritate windoze users that you are trying to convert.  Plus, I
think it better to be able to jump from one page to _any_ other, not
just forward or back as if turning pages in a book.  High praise is
still due, just some usability tweaking needed :-)
