I amend my -1 to a -0. As this was not a motion it is not relevant anyway. I did not want ot block having a nicer main page, it has been bugging me for too long. I'd love to have $wg_rawHtml enabled in the Wiki becasue it allows all kinds of cool mashups but I felt like having to let us know of the potential consequences. 

I am ignorant of an option to only allow div tag but disallow frames. 

Any SAC member with write permission to DefaultSetting.php can change the settings. 

Best regards,
