I understand, but there is a wml_tutorial(7) for this. Ok, currently is covers
only standard stuff, but we can extend it. Just give me hints what topics you
want to find there. As a start:

  - multi-lingual pages
  - navigation bars
  - ??

Hmmmm... how about a wml_example(7) manpage? The other point is that most
examples are very specific and why not just use the search feature of the ML
archive for this?

No, it isn't very useful anymore, because a few days ago the DNS alias
www.engelschall.com already switched to this site ;-) You should notice this
in faster access, I hope. If not, your DNS server has not refreshed (TTL!) or
www.de.engelschall.com is actually faster for you.
