Well, what specifically do you mean with usability? I know, there was  
a huge
discussion about the pros and cons of fixed widths and we shouldn't open
that here again, but reading a big amount of text (like a wiki article
or other documentation) is much easier with a fixed width. That's why
Karsten also applied a fixed width to the style of The Guide.

Anyway, if it's technically possible, I'd ask you to create a stylesheet
which follows typo3.org as much as possible. And I suggest that we  
improvements together with the creators of the TYPO3 style (Rasmus,  
Ben etc.).
I mean, you wouldn't feel comfortable if a graphic artist like Ben  
your PHP code, would you? ;-)

Let's not change that here locally. _If_ we want to have different sizes
for headings, we have to do that everywhere, not only at our 5.0 site.
So, please discuss this with Ben O'Hear and agree on a global rule  
for that.

Generally I think that the whole unification of the style for all TYPO3
sites should be a part of Mathias' typo3.org relaunch project. @Mattes:
Could you imagine coordinating that (or finding some coordinator) to
make sure all TYPO3 sites are based on the same layout rules?
