As Matteo says, this is just a test page to get
the HTML and CSS right. The final content
should be more professional, with this page appearing
as one of the main links.

I suggest a project history documenting Alan's efforts
in this direction. It could also include documents from
similar projects under progress.

We can also have the mailing list archive put up under
the "Archives" link.

Other links could be a project roadmap with an interactive
calendar, the techical papers, information on the evm crew
(us!), a small write up on the technologies we are using.

We can have a "News" link in the main navbox instead
of a scrolling marquee kind of news display (normally
favored by commercial sites.)

The Paypal link is normally put along with the paypal
icon in a visible area. In our page, this could be the space
on the left side below the navigation box. We could also
put up an "OSI-certified" icon there upon project completion.

I dont mind the donations anyday :->
