[TYPO3-typo3org] Designers wanted! CSS for online documents

Hi Jens and the 5.0 list (TYPO3.org list and Ben in copy),

during the last days I had the opporunity to focus more on writing  
documentation for TYPO3 5.0. As some of you might know, we're using  
DocBook as the basis and I can say that it is more and more fun  
writing manuals in that format! We're using some nice XML editor for  
it which really makes it as easy as writing a normal Open Office  
document. (See Karsten's little chapter about that [1])

Well, we're using some standard XSL sheet to render the HTML version  
of the documents and have some basic CSS in place. However, in my  
opinion The Guide (as we call it ...) is not really fun to read - and  
I'm referring to the layout here. And although I'm really not a  
designer, I know that there a good ways to improve the layout for  
screen reading.

I know that Jens would love to invest some of his time into making  
TYPO3 a more nifty place - we had a little chat about that at the  
T3BOARD. And creating a nice CSS for online documentation would also   
profit TYPO3.org of course as we're using the same DocBook XSL sheet  
for the extension manuals.

Jens, would you like to take care of that little project? And who  
would like to join? Just check out the current version of the guide  
[2] and start working on the stylesheets. If you need any help (FTP  
account, whatever) just let me know.

Please answer to this thread in the 5.0 discussion list!
