GNU mailman and valid (and working!) pages

Hi,

I'm always annoyed when reading pipermail archives (from LFS or others),
because I have my default foreground color set to white and my default
background color to black or pink or something strange for debugging
web pages.
The pipermail archives set the default bg color, but not fg, so I see
white text on white background - great!

When I googled for the problem, I found your article, Jeroen:
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2003-September/031422.html

I don't know Python as well, but I'm willing to fix at least that color
and invalid HTML problems. Creating nice XHTML+CSS pages won't be a big
problem as well, I assume.

If they don't want it upstream (see thread
<URL:http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-developers/2004-February/016495.html>),
I'd nevertheless do this for the mailman setup we use at LFS. Would you
like me to give this a try or won't it go into our mailman on belgarath
anyway?

However, there is a small problem: I don't have mailman running over
here and don't know whether it's trivial to install and will fit into
my setup. If yes, I'll be able to do some testing with fake messages.
If no, ... no idea.

I'm off to my next lectures. See you later!
