Hi Oliver,

from the point of directory structure I agree with the others, but I 
would go one step further and use an own simple extension for it. It 
contains all css / img / js and whatever files you need.


It moves out those files from access of "normal" users, if (as in most 
cases) the filemount is not limited to certain subfolders below "fileadmin".

Another advantage is that you can download your ext, upload it to 
another site, add the main setup and constants and you have the site 
mostly running.

If you add other extensions like tt_news, user-registration, et al. to 
the requirements, it even forces you to install them. :-)
