Hmmm... I'm not sure what you mean here.  The only problem I see with 
using it on very narrow displays is the use of big <pre> blocks.  Those 
will never work inside layout tables, and they can be removed fairly 
easily.  For pages that don't have those, I have no problems going well 
below 600 pixels wide.

It should be "usable" on pretty much anything.  That is, you should be 
able to read and navigate the pages on any modern-era browser 
(including, say, lynx).  It should look "nice" on standards-conforming

Again, I'm not sure what you mean here.  The XML is not changing at all. 
  The only thing that is changing is the transformation to html.  The 
only problem I see with going ahead before everything has been converted 
to xml is that the docs will look a little strange for a while: half the 
docs will be in the old design and half in the new.  The main advantage 
I see to that is that it gives us a good incentive to get everything 

Thanks for your feeback.
