Hi Andre,

Do you like the new template I just put up, which adds in "Choose the 
area of the CellML project to which this relates:" as a paragraph above 
the list of products?

This is an iframe with the list of duplicates (which doesn't come up 
with anything at the moment) not the main page.

The template on which this in is configurable (I copied the IFRAME code 
from the bugzilla.mozilla.org submission temlate). The idea of the 
iframe is that embedded in the main page is a sub-page that lets you 
search for duplicates so you don't have to go elsewhere to check for 
duplicates and then come back. However, you are the second person to be 
confused by it, so perhaps it isn't worth it?

Just ignore the iframe (or ideally, use the search box below it which 
will update it to search for the terms you enter), and once you are 
finished just scroll down past it.

However, I think we are going to have to change this - I am just not 
sure how to make it less confusing - perhaps once we have at least one 
duplicate in statistics for the database it won't be as confusing?

Best regards,
