Can you please check the documentation at
to see if it matches the existing process. If there are Godmin actions 
I'm not aware of, please add them.

We'll do testing against this doc

If we can do that without messing with IE rendering (btw, GC has now 
completed IE5.x fixes. Screenies at http://spiked.co.uk/evolt-xbrowser/ 
- - the only minor remaining issue is that IE5 doesn't space the links in 
the top blue bar, which we reckon to be non-fixable without adding 
presentational HTML. As it's IE5, I'm inclined to say 'good enough')

Submit as feature requests. I don't see a problem with the form btw.
