Sorry for the delay.

I'm still not convinced that a div with ID and class is actually
needed.  Can you remember the specific example?

Right, and that's a great move!  I'm just not convinced of the
details in this case.

I don't want this to be advertized on lilypond-user yet since it's
still too soon after the latest website fracas, but I've prepared
a repository so that people can easily experiment with CSS.  It
has the normal index.html, the pictures used by that file, and the
original CSS.  Anybody interested is encouraged to copy the "orig"
directory into a new one, then edit the new CSS as much as they
You can see the results here:

(yes, I ran out of patience when I got to the point of choosing a
color for the "Beautiful Sheet Music" header)

Over the next few days / weeks, I'll continue to edit the "simple"
CSS, and maybe make one or two other examples.  None of this is
intended to be merged with lilypond; I just want to demonstrate
how easy it is to make huge changes with only the CSS.

This way, the next time somebody expresses interest in the
website, they'll have a much clearer idea of what's involved and
what the limitations are.
