Welcome ;)

For a start point you can look at Jakarta Struts front page and this
message:
http://www.mail-archive.com/cocoon-dev@xml.apache.org/msg14374.html

Cocoon docs (including the site pages) are written in XML using docbook-v10
format (see xml-cocoon2\src\documentation\xdocs\ directory), but if you feel
more comfortable with other formats then it's Ok, just post a patch to
Bugzilla with the document or send it to cocoon-dev list and somebody will
convert it to XML.
