what happened to styles 4-7? IMHO, the inversed shaded headers are very

boxes make the page to noisy, you've picked the right page (writing 
tests), if you try to read it and scroll it's not a pleasant experience.

How about using same very light shade of grey and no framed box?

> * light grey background for h2 and h3

as I've mentioned above, the first impression is not very good. I guess 
you get used to things when you read for a long time. But I think the 
plain B&W looks better. My original idea to make the headers standout 
was aimed at making a visual separation between chunkes of text and make 
the beginning of each chunk (header) look a little bit different.

Is there anything wrong with just using a different color, like the 
/guide has now?

or can we try a much lighter bg with what you've now?

Also remember that we are going to support h1-h4 (I almost have it 
working), so the CSS should probably set it for h3 and h4 too.

> * first try at the download widget

+1, great!

probably better to have the icons of the same size. And also to make 
things obvious a small font header 'Download' will make things easier 
for newcomers.

You've also see you have the tmpl dir online, can I grab it and put into
