FWIW I propose that there sits a master CSS file atop www.xfce.org and 
all other sites use that one to get their style setup - this would 
result in the ultimate homogenous layout and prove very fast and 
flexible - it's mirrored across 3 sites!

I'm no big fan of tables myself but my divs tend to position where I 
don't want them ;^). I guess I have to learn a bit more on that....
