Consistency is great. I believe the fvwmref elements are there to generate links in the html version. Providing there's a target for the link, there should be an fvwmref. I think the 79 columns rule is there so we don't see wrap around while editing.

Will look myself or you could submit a patch. The cvs package is "fvwm-web". -- Dan Espen
