Thanks for the answer,
I learned from Brion, that many centralnotice-meter are not created
because there is a problem with non latin-1 characters.
Although there are still some latin-1 languages with ready translations
waiting, the graphic seems not to be an option because it should work
for all languages.
The only things that came into my mind were:
*having the graphic without text
*having the graphic with the text on the left or right of it
*having the sitenotice without possibility to minorize it.
Maybe there are better ideas?
Thanks in advance, Elisabeth Anderl (aka spacebirdy)
