Will a Plone skin do what Kyle suggests? I'm really into the  
underlaying idea present in Kyle's suggestion, not so much for the  
graphical changes, but for the structural changes.

PDDP is more then unifying the looks of the help-patches and  
developing the interactive tutorial. I very much agree that it is a  
very high priority, and am really grateful for the work being done -  
no doubt. But with the current discussion on the subject of the  
website and PR, it would be great to see work done to re-structure  
it, such that new users by the hand of a transparent angle can be  
guided into the land of Pd.

I also know, that things only get done when people voluntarily  
actually do it (as in any anarchistic environment). Therefor, though  
i can't promise it, i will see to make a prober proposal for such a  
change. Much will stay the same, as the present documentation of the  
Pd scene isn't done by fools, most sertanly the complete opposite,  
but i think i have quite unspoiled eyes, to see where changes could  
be to the better, as i have done very little work in Pd and therefor  
don't know very much.

Now; would it be welcome?

Best, (another) steffen
