ITEM: Wiki layout (it's driving me nuts). (Tony)
Too many hidden pages. Suggestion for hierarchical navigation bar
Roger added the navigation widget to the wiki, but there are more requirements. We need a place to describe the requirements; then a group can work to identify a solution. GeneJ to establish a discussion attached to this meeting notes page.
