[Mediawiki-l] Wiki Monobook skin acting funky

Thanks for the tip, it makes sense now as I confirmed with my server
admin that we did in fact move from PHP v4.x to PHP v5.x.

>From what I can tell MW 1.4 is in beta for now - do you recommend I
hold off on upgrading to it? I need the wiki to work reliably, even if
this means it looks a little less pretty for now.

My second question is, if I DO upgrade to MW 1.4 from 1.3, could
someone give me a link to the upgrade instructions page? I looked for
it, but apparently I'm blind...
