[_] Ripping html code

Hi Karl,

I think really the best way is going to just copy the HTML, but I see that
your site has quite a lot of nested DIVS, so it could be a little tricky.
You may have to just mimic it.

If Jobthread allows you to link in external HTML files, you could set up
each section of your site in MODx as a Chunk and then build a new page for
each section e.g. You build a new page in MODx called header.tpl, that
simply calls in the "header" Chunk without a template for the page.

Thinking about it though I think it's unlikely that you would be able to
link in external HTML and I'm pretty certain you will need to just add code.
You should be able to link your current CSS though which may help?

Sorry, but I can't think of a straight forward solution for this.
