That's great! I have reworked the website to take advantage of that.
The header, sidebar and footer are common to all pages. Also, we'll
have to change only one
file when we next release a version of GNU Parted, and it will be
displayed appropriately on all the pages.

I have assumed that all pages that end with .shtml will be
pre-processed by the Apache server. Of course, we could also make use
of the `XBitHack' directive.

Done. I didn't do a very good job of that though!

I just checked the pages on lynx and links, and they look great to me :)

I added a new "Links" section.

Oh, and my web server does not have support for SSI, so I won't be
able to update the copy on kix.in. I have a working copy on my local
server though; let me know when we can upload the new site on
Savannah, and I'll be glad to setup things there directly.
