Here is a link to my suggested layout for the Apache Documentation page.

The following are some of the notable changes (aside from the obvious

1. The Apache header image expanded to 600 pixels instead of the 500
2. Release Features made more visable
3. Renamed "Other Notes" to "Other Topics". Other Notes kinda lessens
(for lack of a better word)
   the sections' importance. (for this type of layout, that is, where
its on the same visible
   level as the other sections).
4. Search made available from the start. We can put a drop down to
search specific sections 
   (i.e. Directives, Reference Manual,...,all)

Of course there are other issues such as the order of the sections;
Other Topics,Reference Manual, Platform Specific Notes. The main reason
for this ordering was that I am viewing the Reference Manual section as
the center. Anyway, the main objective here is the presentation of the
topics. The rest can be dealt with later.

RTFM: Not just an acronym, it's the LAW!
