Just curious, would you explain a bit more the reasons for having 
different cookies for each site?

You can safely throw out that #isPersistent because it is a relict of 
the past and it doesn't serve anything.

Good, by the way, did you try to validate Aida's webpages? How standard 
compliant we are?

That's the same as on your page? It looks better and existing 
WebDicussions really need a replacement anyway. Are you planing to 
separate design to CSS too? This would be fine to do. Later then we can 
change forum look just by changing its CSS.

See http://www.aidaweb.si/tinymce.html for installation and 
configuration instructions. Also don't forget to change home directory 
in Settings to .\ if you are on Windows.
