Martin, would it be possible for you to create a master document of  
the "benefits of Grok"-thread where everything that is on topic is  
added in a "chat-style" log but grouped under the right questions. It  
would be a great source of info. It also helps in giving credit where  
credit is due.

I have customer deadline on Tuesday and a pitch later the same day,  
so expect stuff to materialise next week, but then I am rather  
motivated so it might be sooner.

Right now I am trying to make the base design really simple. The  
caveman would be used as part of the content.

Do I need to make any special considerations? Is there any CMS- 
functionality involved?
