Hi all,
After all the month-long whining that no perl developer with ~10 hours at hand 
could be found for using texi2html for the docs generation, I though that it 
couldn't possibly be that hard and I was crazy enough to try it out. -- Well, 
it wasn't hard (thanks also to Graham's enthusiasm and administrative help)!

The current status of the conversion (which was aimed at looking like the old 
docs) can be found at:

Could you please have a look at it and tell me about things that should / need 
to be fixed before this can be used for the "official" docs creation.

And then I played around a little with the flexibility that texi2html brings 
and my current results can be found at:
(Don't worry about the long toc on the left, I simply haven't yet found a way 
to show only two levels plus the full path to the current page).

As you can see, there is a lot that texi2html can do (you have basically full 
control over the html page generation), so all that is missing is some good 
screen design. As this is not my strength, the current output really sucks as 
far as a good look (Headers, colors, frames, fonts, layout, text/position of 
the navigation links) is concerned. So, who would be willing to do the 
graphical design of the docs page, which I can then implement in HTML/CSS?

Also, are there any features that you would like to see in the documentation 
(not editorial, but technical stuff!)?
