I would be glad to but I have no sufficient expirence
except learning stuff from books and some careful reading
or others writing. Some training also counts, but that's

That I can say for sure is that Struts main page is very
carefully designed in terms of that should be placed on
top, that should go next, and so on - it gives a hint about
order in which things (and that things) should be

Maybe it is reasonable to copy _information structure_ from
Struts page and replace Struts stuff with Cocoon stuff, and
then change it if need. For example, our "horses" (imho)
could be XML/W3C, in place of JSP/Sun for Struts. Sun makes
standards for Java, but W3C makes standards for the whole
web. SVG, XHTML, XML, XSLT, a lot of stuff that Cocoon uses
was born at W3C. Cocoon allows use of most advanced W3C
tecnhologies in a way that most other frameworks still
can't provide, this fact can be used. W3C gave life to
XHTML, and W3C gave life to XML/XSLT, but the latter ones
still are supported by Cocoon better than in most other
frameworks like Struts.

In short: there is a good example of good main page around
here, and if we can replace it's information by our
information and then add some stuff unique to Cocoon, it
will be a good thing. Good step to make Cocoon more popular
and simplify comparing it to Struts and other frameworks.
