Subject Re: Web Page Issue

I started to work on this. Please see here:

Basically, I just changed the color schema of the menu. I also remove
"How to Contribute" and "Coding Guidelines" from "Internals".

To get an even better separation, I would like to change the menu from
the main web page, too.

 - At least we should change the link of "Overview" which is not useful
at all, right now (is it broken or intentionally?)
 - I would also move "Quickstart" as sub-menu point of "Documentation"
 - maybe we could move "Overview" as sub-menu point of "Documentation", too

From my point of view, having a different menu structure and color
should be good enough to make the distinction of both pages clear.

Btw: the link "setup guide" in *Getting Started* section at the main
page is broken... I would fix this together with those changes (if

Please give feedback.
