Well, that's cool, but now comes the stupid question:
While at it, why not just change the whole look ?
And why absolutely keep images for the "menu" ?

I think before going too far on css stuff and code change, it would be
worth talking about it, talking about what to put, how and where.

When I tried a redesign of the debian home page a while ago[1], i've hit
some issues that might be worth considering, such as page size. There
are stuff in pages that are likely to be useful in less than 1% of the
cases that eat a huge amount of its size, such as "Select a server near
you" and the full language list.

Then, the next step would be to decide how to do it, and if i recall
correctly, somebody posted here a list of stuff to do for a transition
to xhtml from the current stuff.


1. That's still available on http://glandium.org/debian/www.html though
   the url might change in the near future since i'm heavily reorganising
   my website. It seems I did that a year ago, according to the dates of
   security alerts.
