Yes - this is the problem. Normally I would like to put it always to the
column "Normal" but NOT in the pid=384

:( - in fact useless because it doesn't at all solve the problem I have. 
If this is the case:

1) shared content needs then several pages if content has been defined 
using the page module TemplaVoila

2) for shared contents it is necessary to use the old page module and 
use with that page MTB

The latter alternative is presumably better. Only *one* person needs
to define shared content areas.

I undestand this, but concerning shared contents this is problem.
Using MTB I can define all shared content using one page.
There should be some method to do exactly the same as I have done
with MTB by defining contant.txt and setup.txt for CSS Styled Content
to support shared contents.

I have searched for that kind of solution. If we think this matter in 
general, this is quite important. A customer might want temporarily 
write some shared content to advertise in every page some happening.
Shared content gives easily the possibility to alter headers and footers 
(endeed my partner said that customer *should not* alter the footer).
