Hi Matthews, Antonio and all others,

I would be mostly intrested in/able to create the XHTML+CSS graphical
layout thus I definitely need some help from translation teams/a
translation guru. I will get in touch with Alexander and talk about
this. If there's anybody else interested in this, any help is still
appreciated.
