My apologies, Tony. I just noticed that you were pinging me here :/ I'll forward the logs once I return from vacation next week.

I wanted to point out that the Fluid wiki is now using Confluence 5.6.3 and I briefly tried the mobile interface on an Android phone. We are waiting for a license for the 'HTML for Confluence'* plugin that some of the content relies on. Until we get that license the "Unknown macro: {html}" text along with markup is being displayed on pages.
