where the files in 1999 and drnj have different navigation-bars.

Agencies and one for Companies. Some files have the same content
but different nav-bars. So there I have one directory for all wml

and two directories for agencies and companies.

in different hierarchical levels. For example:

and the same file as

There are problems with the pathes, because in the first file there
must be an image "../bilder/image.gif" and in the index-file it must
