While I agree with you for the most part, I do *not* think the logo
should be a background image.

The LilyPond logo is being used as the LilyPond "brand", so to speak.
Typically websites inline the branded images so that users with
stylesheets turned off or users with a non-graphical browser will know
that the image is there.

The same thing applies for sites that don't have stylesheets, like the
various GNU sites the use the "non-gif" gnu image as their brand.


Now you know the reason why I had the logo inlined in texinfo.  :-)

I don't see a black background.  I see a cropped treble clef though.

Also, I must have missed the reason why you moved the box.  I think it
was much more noticeable in its previous location.

I would rather not have the page header title ("LilyPond" etc.) on the
right side of the page, but if the change is justified, I might change
my mind.

Are are any volunteers to continue work on the CSS?
