The "xml" image is still underlined.
The printable page looks much better.

Not sure asking for 1000 news items is reasonable and the same link to 
?newsitemcount=1000 appears on that page too.

Top title is still missing.
The big fat "4. Preparing the Disks" has disappeared.
It was there: http://dev.gentoo.org/~neysx/wwwredesign/5.png

It hasn't been fixed on printable pages.
Speaking of printable pages, none of them have any title.

Weird thing: clicking on a screenshot on 
http://wwwredesign.gentoo.org/main/en/shots.xml adds a vertical scroll bar to it.

Looking at it, I think it would look better if the ad column ran to the end of 
the page. Sorry for suggesting to either colour it or use it. The former is 
better IMHO.
