Hi all,

My 2% of your currency:

+ Artwork origin is still unknown. As long as we don't know for sure we are
allowed to use it, we won't expose ourselves to legal action.

+ General note: html pages should make as little use of <img> as possible and
let the css add images whenever possible.
FYI, I just replaced line.gif(1) from the current pages with a border
attribute because it writes more bytes to the logs than it sends down the
wire. At 40,000+ hits/day on line.gif alone, it's a waste easily avoided.

+ ToDo: complete design, i.e. decide on how to display note/warn/impo
elements, code samples, tables, credits, handbook navigation...

+ ToDo: code html/css in a way that works.
This is how http://www.aaronshi.com/gentoo/ looks at the moment:

FYI, the current design:

+ ToDo: cleanup and coding of guide.xsl will be rather trivial once the above
has been completed. I have already made it a bit shorter(1) by factoring the
right-hand column that was coded twice and removed the <table> used to layout
newsitems.


(1) some changes are still waiting to be committed.


Cheers,
