Hi, I'm a long time xfce user and have been lurking around the mailing list for a year or so. I didn't really expect to give some input - because my coding is miserable at best - I just thought it fun to see what's going on. Anyway, it happens that I'm an enthusiastic graphic designer with some experience in web design. I don't really know in how far my skills and not really plentiful time could help the xfce community, but if you're kind enough to give me more detail on what exactly is required, I'd be happy to tell you what I can and can't do.
