[REBOL] Re: GMANE --> was {Re: Re: List subscription}

Jason: Commenting on a couple of your comments....

That's because it uses frames -- which are a terrible idea for a web interface. One random reference for the problems with frames: That's part of the reason why it **needs** some Javascript to work. Again, not a great idea as something like 15% of people (and 100% of search engines) don't browse with Javascript enabled. So overall, GMANE's interface is not one I'd **recommend** for general use. Of course, it's fine for the people it works for.

I don't even see that on my browser....Possibly it's a feature that works only on some browsers, or my browser of choice is tripping up on one of the HTML errors. Either way, it's a good point......There was no way at to see where you are in a thread if you are reading message-by-message. I've fixed that. Sorry, it's not a colored bar. It's a navigation bar, at the bottom of the message, that is consistent with the other nav-bars used on, eg: Sunanda.
