I like it a lot on your sample page. I uploaded an updated css for the 
online docs, e.g. .

I wonder if the screenshots aren't looking too grey with this background 
color. Perhaps they need a shadow... Benny, what tool did you use to 
create the xfce4-session screenies?

Also I would need to change the color for examples and tables, probably 
in the xsl stylesheet.

Anyone else have an opinion? Francois?
