Thanks for your reply. I've allready rewrote some of my templates but
still there is some diferences. One tthing that strikes me, i've
rewriten some of the to use keys but i see absolutly no diference
before and after that. Is that normal? I'm using keys mainly to lookup
nodes is a seconde document using the document() function.

Best regards.
