hello !

the new site is so good.

but why don't you use syilesheets to gain uniformity on the site ?

for example documentation pages are written with a different style 
with all other pages of the site.

if you include a line in every documentation page, between <head> 
and </head> tags, you can change the look of all these pages only by 
editing the stylesheet

the line is:

<LINK type='text/css' rel='stylesheet' href='../style/style.css'/>

where href indicates the path of the stylesheet

so you can change thousand of documentation pages, just by editing 
the stylesheet.

an example of stylesheet is:
  color: green;
  font-family: verdana;
  font-size: 12 px;
  font-family: arial;

Last i've observed if you edit your css's files with Visual 
Studio .NET, it helps with intellisense: giving for each Tag all 
possible attributes, and for all attributes it give a list of all 
possible finite-values.

(I do not love MS but this is a rapid developement tool) 

Please excuse me for my poor english..
with best regards:
