I increased the font size and made it darker.  I also updated the tutorial.  Time for me to
do other things until this weekend when I'm going to cut over, so if you have stuff you don't
like before we cut over, see instructions below.  This weekend, I will bring in the old versioned
docs as well as port over the .htaccess stuff and add in redirects for the lucene/java stuff
to be lucene/core.

If someone could update the news to be current, that would be much appreciated.
