Too text-heavy! It looks gray, like the New York Times.

I like the general idea here regarding content, but the text layout
looks funny. Particularly the centered headers over left-justified text.
Try to fully justify the text or set the headers to the left edge and
see how things look.

For some reason, the bottom of what would be the front once it's folded
just looks very cheesy to me. Anyone else? And I'm not sure the
pr@g.o alias wants to get deluged with email all about random new
Gentoo users.. =)

Please do put the sources up somewhere. Aren't they just XML, if you
save uncompressed? They could go in CVS.
