I don't know enough PHP to access the difficulty, but I can tell
you that solving these issues is going to mean changing the PHP,
not just the plug-in values.
Some are more important than others. The most important ones, I'd
think, would be the ones that make portions of the page illegible,
i.e., the first and last ones on the list above. After that, the
search breakage is probably more important than the purely cosmetic
issue, although I'd be tempted to solve it by styling the search
box in the header as display: none; and putting a search box in
a more sensible location.
However, *none* of these issues are as important as making .svg
upload work. Nothing else regarding ccHost is of any real value
to OCAL until that particular issue is solved.
