Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Karaf marketing

Hi Serge,

I applied your two proposals and updated the website on my server.

It looks better to me as well (I don't see a huge change about 
line-height, but border-radius is fine).

Morgan also requested to add more space bottom to the top menu.

I looked at the CSS and noticed you have a line-height: 20px set that seems very weird on
the home page. I tested by deactivating it (removing it) and it seems the default setting
works better on the pages I tested.
