AN UPDATE ON WHAT'S GOING ON:
I have received many good suggestions both in this thread and over e-mail and PM's from you all. I sincerely thank you for all of them. Rest assured that not one of them will be left unattended, and upon thorough analysis, we will bring as many of them into life as possible and as deemed useful for all
At this stage I would like to comment on two specific ideas mentioned above:

We will leave the ">" as a default, but the affiliates will be able to easily change this to whatever they want now.

The programmer is telling me that it is not impossible, and he is able to accommodate this. I may put the idea on hold -- not to hold the development of the tempates that will not have this feature -- at this time, but I will definitely return to it soon (as soon as the most wanted templates are up), as it is something that I've wanted to do for my affiliates for a long time...
Thanks again for your valuable feedback, everyone.
Should anyone else want to comment, suggest, criticize (or praise
), post your thoughts here.
Thanks again, and off I go to work on those sub-category icons to finish the RL template and move on to the next one.
