Subject: Wiki work, Template:Doclink

The module pages on the wiki could look a little better, like this one for example: http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Module:Bio::Tools::Run::RemoteBlast. There used to be a bunch of extra whitespace at the top of the page, which was caused by extra line breaks in Template:Doclink, which I just removed. But, I think there are other improvements that could be made. I would like to turn this into an infobox -- which are the helpful informative tables of info on Wikipedia that appear on many articles on the upper right. That would allow us to add more links -- like to metacpan, for example. It is not completely trivial to import infoboxes into a wiki though, I just discovered. I just went through the exercise on my home wiki, and it involves importing a lot of templates from Wikipedia, and fixing up the common.css. You can see the full list of imported templates here: http://chrismaloney.org/wiki/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&limit=100. I don't *think* this should cause any problems, but I'm not 100% sure. On the other hand, if it does, it should be easy to roll back -- it's a wiki, after all. Does anybody have a problem if I do this? I'll wait a day for responses, and tackle this tomorrow, if no one objects. -- Chris M.
