> If I am not mistaken, the mhttpd.css is hard coded (path/name) into the mhttpd.

mhttpd.css is served from $MIDASSYS/resources/mhttpd.css. The actual path is reported on the mhttpd 
"help" page.

(I think the internal mhttpd.css and mhttpd.js should be removed as no longer useful - nothing will work 
right if the real mhttpd.js and mhttpd.css cannot be served).

> Especially the look and feel of the runlog is unsatisfactorily from my point of view.

persons in charge of implementing the CSS stuff failed to convert quite a few pages, for example, the elog 
and the history editor pages were left completely broken. (mostly fixed now).

so thank you for reporting the runlog breakage, I hope Stefan & co can fix it quickly. (I cannot do - I have 
have no runlog pages on any of my test experiments).

> the old style was much more readable.

I think the new style is not too bad, except for a few visual artefacts here and there, the general comment 
that CSS is too complicated and hard to debug and the fact that over-subtle colouring yields inconsistent 
visuals between different monitors and ambient lighting conditions. (persons who select the colours always 
respond that "but to me, it looks just fine on my laptop", making it hard to resolve any issues).

> I could recover the old style look and feel by slightly changing the mhttpd.cxx

If you post the patches that fix it for you, I can commit them to midas. (git diff | mail
