You have to remember that we are just trying to finalize the layout
right now. The table vs div and the font issues can all be done later.
I'm just using the template that aaron shi originally made at the
moment. Once we get all the major pages layed out we can worry about
the details. 

port001 thanks for putting things up on your dev space. I'm planning on
setting up an FTP server and moving the web space I put up yesterday to
a dedicated box for this project. I just bought it and it will be here
next week.

I'm also planning on setting up the axkit backend that is outlined in
the doc tricks and tips[1] so when the time comes we can actually use
the same infrastruture that gentoo uses to fine tune the templates and
have a working prototype of the entire site for testing. It'll be a
while before we get to that stage though.
