Thanks. Maybe setting [easy] in orange and [done] in green would solve that 
too.

Based on the feedback so far, I have tried for a best of both worlds
approach.  The markers now include icons, which gives us visual
distinctiveness, and I've abbreviated the labels to [D] and [E],
which makes it very easy to search.

I agreed with Bruce that it was a shame the markers bumped the actual
item text over to the right.  It looked uneven.  So I applied a bit of
CSS-fu and got the markers to appear to the left of the items.  They
now appear in a similar fashion to the bullets in an unordered list.

Cheers,
BJ

Hi,

While we're on this topic, I think we need put a link at [1] heading
directly to (Official) Todo [2]. What we have ATM is Unofficial Todo
Detail that is rather inconsistent. We should rename it to Todo
Detail. Comments?

Agreed, we used to have an official TODO.detail in CVS but that is gone
so I think removing the Unofficial word int he title makes sense.

 Hi,

 Thanks to Brendan Jurd, who spent a lot of effort in creating useful
 Mediawiki templates, we now have moved the TODO list to the Wiki site.

 The new official location for the TODO list is here:
 http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Todo:Todo

Any chance of changing Easier and Done marks to others easier to find by a 
simple search with the browser? Maybe [E] and [D] would do. The old list had 
the same problem IMHO.


 I hereby kindly request the WWW team to update any references to point
 to the new address; perhaps install a redirection in
 http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faqs.TODO.html to the new location.

 The move has been approved by Bruce, the current maintainer.  I hope
 that he continues to maintain the new version.

 While many details have been sorted out during the move, being a wiki
 there is nothing set in stone.  Feel free to do changes like improve the
 markup or the templates so that things look better (after appropriate
 discussion), but if you intend to make changes like mark items
 completed, add new items, or remove items, please email pgsql-hackers as
 has been Bruce's tradition.

That doesn't make it easily searchable. Maybe I'm the only one, but every  now 
and then I take a look at it, and there's no fast way of seeing what items 
have been done (and marked as easier).

That is true, but text like E merges into the adjacent words.  Frankly
the puctuation symbols were a good solution, but not as slick as the
bullet/checkmark suggestion.

They did not merge with the text, but they were not searchable.  May I
suggest using the text [easy] and [done] instead?  That way, it is
searchable, and they don't merge with the text.

Perhaps [Easy] and [Done] would look a little more different?  Not sure.

Looks OK.  The only downside is that reading down the list now has the
easy/done items shifted to the left, but that seems unavoidable.
