My name is Luciano Espirito Santo. I live in Santos, SP, Brazil.

Many people call me Mr. Santo, but Espirito Santo is my family name. It means "the Holy Ghost", but I am not catholic. Actually, I don't subscribe to any religion, except maybe The Tao of Tcl and the Friday Night Holy Pizza Congregation. And since Tcl is so generous with foreign languages/characters, let's do it right: "Espírito" has an accented i.

I am not a programmer like almost everyone in the Tcl'ers wiki; I am a translator, I have this site:

But I like to program in my spare time. I did a lot of PHP in 2001 and 2002 and eventually married Tcl/Tk in 2003. Tcl has become my first choice in all my scripting leisure time.

As a translator, I like to play with words. I also spend a lot of time wrestling with sed. Of course, I love Regular Expressions.

These have been my humble contributions to this wiki so far:

Moved here from Wiki with style: LES on Nov-12-2007: I don't want to seem rude or ungrateful, but I don't like "the new look" at all. I think that menu takes up too much space and, actually, I loathe Javascript. I missed the old look. So I did what I could to restore the old look and, while at it, changed it a little. I decided to share my solution. Even if you don't like it, you can hack it. Except that, of course, if you want to hack the CSS that is hosted in my site [L1 ], you will have to host it yourself elsewhere. First of all, you need to install and configure Privoxy [L2 ]. Then download these two files: [L3 ] and [L4 ]. Copy the contents of my user.action file to the end (append) of yours and the contents of my default.filter file to the end (append) of yours. That's all. There is no need to reboot your machine or restart Privoxy. Just refresh the pages in your browser. Please note that I made that for Firefox on Linux. I also tested it on Konqueror. I have no idea if it will work on IE.

This is not a bug report, suggestion or feature request. It's a completely independent solution that anyone can use now without the approval of any Web designer or team and will not interfere with anybody else's experience. It's completely private. I thought the best place for me to share this idea was at the Wiki with style page. People interested in or dissatisfied with the recent changes are likely to read that page. No one is likely to be interested in reading my personal page. But my idea is not welcome there:

 [stevel] - can't please everyone, but I *again* respectfully request that you keep such discussions 
 off this page. Can I suggest you start another page for discussing alternative wiki layouts?  I'll 
 then post my comments - which will be along the lines of "whatever works for you" and "don't 
 underestimate the effort involved in getting an acceptably good solution across multiple platforms". 
 You do realise you can hit the "Hide menu" link at the bottom of each page, don't you?

Complied. It doesn't make much sense to me, but it's not really important either.
