Just converted my HyperMail setup to MHonArc, and I must say MHonArc is a
brilliant piece of work. Just a brief question: is there any public
repository of 'styles' (i.e. complete resource files) ?

Not that I am aware of.  The problem is that user's resource files tend
to be site specific.  Ideally, there would be a tutorial on resource
files, and tips on achieving common tasks.  However, that takes time,
and I try my best to at least keep the reference manual and FAQ
up-to-date.  Maintaining the documentation takes around the same time
as maintaining the code, and sometimes, it takes more time.  I hope
someday to write up some tutorials.

Incidentally, is there a way to set 'custom resources' ? I manage a number of
mailing lists, each with there own name and home page, which I like to
include in the lay-out. I solved it by using the C-preprocessor, but maybe
there are cleverer ways. Anyway, regards,

There are custom resource variables.  You can define your own variables
which you can use resources.  See the DEFINEVAR resource for more
