Users are likely do not really know about the difference between OOo and 
AOO. Therefore the wording "start downloading the most recent version" 
might be misleading. You mean the most recent version of OOo, but the 
user might think, the most recent version in general.

Which version number the user is going to download, is said in the 
heading. So the additional information about language and OS is 
sufficient here. If many versions of a procuct are provided, the user 
expects to get the most recent one when using default settings.

(1) Add "legacy"
  "Click to start downloading the most recent legacy version for Windows 
and German."
(2) or skip it totally
"Click to start downloading the legacy version for Windows and German.
(3) or repeat the version string from the heading
"Click to start downloading 3.0 for Windows and German."

I have played a little bit around with Opera. It seems, that it 
struggles about the variables VERSION, MIRROR, SCHEMA. I assume that 
they are global and not present in this staging version. Hopefully Opera 
shows the green part too, when the page is produced.

The orange disclaimer has anchor elements without target href. That 
produces the hand-cursor in the browser, which indicates, that there is 
a hyperlink. But here is no hyperlink and nothing happens, when 
clicking. Therefore it it confusing. Please remove the anchor markup.

Kind regards
