ok .. changing to text fields ;) just hope people spell the names correctly ;)

will do :)

this section will be open for all to contribute to .. so once you submit a
incompatibility it'll be listed here untill somebody can a) prove it wrong B)
help with a workaround c) rewite the code for it ? *grin*

was just suggestions .. I'm acualy looking for a possible information breakdown
of what should be covered in whitepapers * since I have never done one* and
most other sections that does not have any *major* information yet 

I think alot of people have information but no way to submit the info .. 

I'm hoping this will motivate people to submit all the info cramed in their
heads into the site ;) 

Henti :))
