Yes, wiki way for sure. Please feel free to add something about it. I'll
be working on AWN today and probably won't get to do wiki stuff.

OK, I removed the navigation bar, but kept the logo.

I don't see the above problem. Maybe you fixed it? The text was copied
from the old FAQ where it looked funny, come to think of it. It's
probably just because the browser tries to align the text to the page,
and the long URL causing a big gap on one of the lines.

Just move as much across as you care to do. I feel it'd be a shame for
AbiWord users who naturally go to www.abisource.com to miss the stuff
you put at WikiLearn.

I did consider doing that. But TBH I was nearing burnout Friday night
and wanted to have something there, so I just slapped it in as you see
I'd be interested to rename the subjects with a FAQ prefix, and also add
a "See Also" section to inter-connect related help sections. On the
other hand, having to label a specific subject as a FAQ is superfluous -
let the user decide what he wants to read or not, and how the stuff is
I'd say, just let it grow. Let's see where it takes us.
