Hi leaders,

I was not really a friend of that before. However the recent
change made matters really worse.

* internal links are not visible as such
* the font is way too small
* it seems the tab title cannot contain anything else then
  plain US ASCII, e.g. ISO-8859-1 like ü is not supported
  anymore *which broke the whole German OWASP pages*
* HTML anchors (used here: div id=) do not work anymore. So links
  like
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Project#Beta_Status_Projects
  are broken (unless you block JavaScript and your browser falls
  back to another design.

Example URLs:

https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Project
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Germany
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/German_OWASP_Day_2011#English_Version
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_German_Chapter_Stammtisch_Initiative

The latter one is still listing München, Köln and Nünberg which breaks
the tabs. <sarcasm>sorry that we Germans dare to carry some "umlaute" in
our major cities</sarcasm>. That did work better before the change.

I was wondering whether there was some Q&A at all before putting
this online?


Best,

Dirk

PS: This was tested w/ Chrome, FF, IE9 (latter one didn't
    check anchors)
