Exactly...because If I take the code from the Magento Demo store it is just pictures and texts and links in HTML...........its nothing to do with the best selling products in a certain category!?!?!!? 

A code like above would be perfect and I think its pritty certain that nearly everybody will want to list their best selling prouducts in certain categorys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All those in favour?

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="3" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

thats not going to do anything but just list the products. We need to list the products by sales. Products that have been purchased the most show up near the top.
