I don't think it's rude. You translated everything you said; I completely
understand wanting to express yourself in your native language. This is why
I wondered if it would be possible for you to make another list where you
didn't have to translate every paragraph you said (and then maybe pass on a
summary occasionally).

I used Twiki and MoinMoin and I just found them very unintuitive. Perhaps I
am too crotchety to bother with things I don't know, but it was truly
annoying how so much of their documentation was *in* a wiki. I felt like I
was just clicking link after link and going nowhere. I didn't find them
easy to customize either. I want a list of variables, CSS classes/id's, a
config file, and my favorite editor. I hate clicking on things.

Good luck. :) Take what you need from the d-w CSS file
(women.alioth.debian.org/dw.css) as well as the XHTML stuff.

Yeah, I have other stuff to attend to as well, but maybe we could work on
it together.

I'm not really picky, I'm just not a web designer. Whatever works is fine
with me.
