I committed the Phoenix docs in Forrest format in the Phoenix CVS, and 
changed the build file and tools to support the new doc system.

I have tested the site, site-all, announcement targets but not yet the 
dist targets because I have speed problems with my internet connection 
at home and I'm having a hard time in downloading MX4J; I'll test them 

If anyone has the opportunity to give it a test please report and I'll 
fix it ASAP.

The docs use a new avalon-tigris skin that Peter Donald has submitted to 

If you are ok with this version, I can regenerate the site and put it up 
live, after fixing a bug there seems to be in the <code> tag handling, 
after adding a link to every page for PDF files, and after adding the 
top links to other Avalon sub-projects.

_INFO about the new docs system_

New docs dir:

New content dir:

New resources and images dir:

To build the documentation download Forrest from CVS
  install it as described here

cd in the  jakarta-avalon-phoenix dir and run "forrest"

To see the site real-time from a local embedded webserver run
  forrest run
and point the browser to http://localhost:8888/
The sources to change are in ./build/webapp, you will need to synch them 
with the actual docs manually.

Or run the Phoenix build.xml with target "site".
To add also javadocs run "site-all".


There is a broken link in getting-started.xml:

Firstly you will need to get the demo-helloword.sar file and drop it 
into the apps directory of Phoenix.
Get it from <link href="TODO">TODO</link>
