    It was a bit hard to understand where to put the tag, but now it works well and looks pretty. I had problems with the pagination (didn't look good with my template at all) and I still have one with IE, but no doubts that I'll fix it. Thanks for this excellent work

    Yes, what needs to be copied and where? The instructions are not very clear on where the HTML code for CSS refernce needs to be put without screwing the original design of the page.
