Actually, I'm so close to bone stock it would scare you.  Right now the
total customizations are the inclusion of 'httpauth' script and the
'newpageboxplus' cookbook, and this one and only one CSS class.

I'm trying really hard to remain stock ;-)  We already maintain too much
customized internal code.

Eh?  I may be reading this wrong, but actually no I don't want vertical
space from p tags.  (code is right but description wrong?)

Actually, I wish that it wasn't putting p tags around the block at all, but
I don't quite know how to avoid that
