I guess we will create a branch to work in as part of the Forrest 
Tuesday thing. We will, most likely start off with a new seed site that 
uses XHTML2 as the source files. We then need to convert forrest:views 
to work with these input files rather than with Xdocs.

I think the process you are using, working through the recomendation and 
creating parts of the document to illustrate each of the elements is 
better than starting with an existing document v2.0. This way we know we 
have everything in the example page. Although it is worth bearing in 
mind the goal is to have a file that can replace as an example of ow to 
do things, so the language used should be similar..

It is brilliant you are finding the time to get started on this stuff 
ahead of Forrest Tuesday. We will need you to be around all (your) night 
to advise on the relaxNG stuff ;-)
