Hi Dmitry,

Yeah, I didn't have too high hopes for the WYSIWYG being overly clever, 
but it was still a rude suprise when it disobeyed my intentions so 
vulgarly :)

I'm sorry, but with my practically non-existent TYPO3 background, I 
have no idea what you just wrote. Not sure what an ACT state is, what 
the syntax for it is, or how I can render submenus. Perhaps if you can 
mock up some code, or point me towards a tutorial on it?

I was looking for a CSS linking option in the TemplaVoila wizard, but 
couldn't find one? (So then I had to resort to this TS hack, of whose 
ill-effects I am blissfully unaware of. What's bad about it?)
