I am aware of this, you are right.

But AFAIK each project has the opportunity of making the docs as he prefers,
and the jakarta-poi site is, in fact, a little different from the
anakia-built ones.

AFAIK we, at POI, would all appreciate the new layout, but I'm not aware
though of what could happen if we did star to use it.

So I would like to see three layouts:
1- Jakarta style L&F
2- xml.apache L&F
3- Forrest L&F with different CSS styles

Ok, so I will put the new Jakarta style that we fixed in POI and the new
xml.apache one that's fixed in Cocoon.
Projects can start to use Forrest site building right away (as soon as Gump
is ready for site update that is), with the current styles.
When the Forrest style is ready, we will switch the Forrest site to use it,
and I bet my ass that they will ask us to change ;-)
