Thanks, I'll try that.

Another sizing related question. MythNews (with MythCenter and 
MythCenter-wide) does not utilize full screen width while showing news 
article title list. Titles are cut too early with "some tex..." -endings.

This can be "fixed" in default/base.xml under "basebuttonlist". There 
"buttontext" is defined to go only until 90% of the area. Changing this 
to 97-98% makes MythNews work better. But I suspect this would break 
several other places since this is the base.xml? And correct approach 
would be to redefine new buttonlist component in MythNews theme xml?
