+    <!-- Introductory section -->
+    <h2 class="content">Welcome to the Cassandra Project</h2>
+
+    <p>Cassandra is a highly scalable, eventually consistent, distributed,
+    structured key-value store. Cassandra brings together the distributed
+    systems technologies from <a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/AllThingsDistributed/sosp/amazon-dynamo-sosp2007.pdf">Dynamo</a>

+    and the data model from Google's <a href="http://labs.google.com/papers/bigtable-osdi06.pdf">BigTable</a>.
+    Like Dynamo, Cassandra is <a href="http://www.allthingsdistributed.com/2008/12/eventually_consistent.html">eventually
consistent</a>.
+    Like BigTable, Cassandra provides a ColumnFamily-based data model
+    richer than typical key/value systems.</p>
+
+    <p>Cassandra was open sourced by Facebook in 2008, where it was
+    designed by one of the authors of Amazon's Dynamo. In a lot of ways
+    you can think of Cassandra as Dynamo 2.0. Cassandra is in
+    production use at Facebook but is still under heavy
+    development.</p>
+
+    <!-- Features section -->
+    <h2 class="content"><a name="features">Features</a></h2>
+    <p>Cassandra's Features:</p>
+    <ol>
+      <li>Cassandra is designed to be always available. Writes never fail.
+      Two read paths are available: high-performance "weak" reads and 
+      quorum reads. See <a href="http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CSDR/ThriftInterface">ThriftInterface</a>.</li>
+      <li>Cassandra has a rich <a href="http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CSDR/Data+Model">data
model</a> 
+      allowing efficient use for many applications beyond simple 
+      key/value.</li>
+      <li>Data is automatically replicated to multiple nodes for
+      fault-tolerance. There is support for implementing strategies that
+      replicate across multiple data centers.</li>
+      <li>Elasticity: new nodes can be added to a running cluster while
+      minimizing disruption to existing data.</li>
+      <li>Consistency: Cassandra follows the <a href="http://www.allthingsdistributed.com/2008/12/eventually_consistent.html">"eventually
consistent" model</a>
+      but includes sophisticated features such as Hinted Handoff and Read
+      Repair to minimize inconsistency windows.</li>
+      <li>Reads and writes in Cassandra are guaranteed to be atomic within
+      a single ColumnFamily.</li>
+      <li>Support for versioning and conflict resolution (with inbuilt
+      policies like "last update wins").</li>
+    </ol>
+
+    <!-- Resources section -->
