I find watermarks quite annoying when trying to read documents, no matter
how light it is.
Why can't we just stick with the worldwide standard for wikis? The Mageia
logo in the top corner, the Mageia favicon, and that's it.
I would keep the "standard" links bar at the top of the page though. You
know, the one on the forums and blog and a few other places.
