Subject RE: [doc] new "Getting Started" guides
Date Fri, 22 Sep 2006 15:16:53 GMT
Folks, am I the only one seeing this? 

http://incubator.apache.org/harmony/quickhelp_contributors.html 
The page starts with the middle of the description to say "This will
checkout a directory structure that ..." with all text set to
align:center, including code snippets. Then, approximately 2 screens
below, we get the webpage heading and the real start of the web page
text, with normal alignment. 

.. this must be the Friday evening effect. 

Best regards, 
Nadya Morozova

Right - that's what I suggested.  We have the faq start on the  
website, and then at the bottome, like to the wikiFaq, so that people  
can just add there w/o having to do a patch.  Then harvest the good  
stuff that comes to the wikiFaq back into the website....

Does that make sense?
