Many thanks for your efforst so far. You've made some good progress. One 
thing I don't like about the current behaviour of the side bar is the 
fact that it expands the entire FOP sub project and you then have to 
scroll for ages to find the right section. Is there no way to have it 
function like a tree, only expanding those nodes which you ask to expand 
by clicking?

Yes, it is a requirement for sub projects to have their own logo. FOP 
and Batik both have a logo already, I suggest re-using them in the new site.

Yes I would like it be a little larger/bolder.

Also we need a page that documents the process of making website updates 
and re-deploying. Hopefully it will be a lot simpler using the CMS approach.
