Thanks, Mark. The information on my sites is different, only the 
structure is very similar, so if I decide in favor of 3 different 
installations, I would also use 3 separate databases to be more flexible.

Speaking of templates: is it possible to slightly change the installed 
template dynamically depending on the requested "page"? For example 
(simplified), if a visitor goes to "books", there is a book image in the 
background, and on "cars" it's a car?
