Sweet. :)

One tweak, on the HREF for the DUG.  We're going to go live with the
Wiki version in Docs/Drafts instead of trying to move it out.  

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Drafts/DesktopUserGuide

Here are some quick language edits, as a patch to the HTML currently
posted (18:30 UTC 13 Sep.):

Did you look at what Tommy sent last night?  Seemed to work.

Try #fedora-art, let me know if you don't get a timely response.  Timely
means, by tomorrow. :)

To me, 'system' is less personable.  So, we need something friendly that
makes sense when translated.  Here are some ideas, let's iterate:

Your Fedora Home Page
Fedora Default Homepage
Fedora Home
Fedora Local Home
Home on Fedora
Fedora Start Page

Is Echo going to come out for FC6 later?

I don't know about this one ... despite the coolness, it does help the
user experience to have consistent icons.  'Course, Bluecurve is
inconsistent anyway, so this could just be more of that same ...

Esp. if we cannot easily make the page auto-shift to the right language,
this could be very nice.

No, there is no package for it yet, in Core or Extras.  We should move
to get it into Extras; maybe we can even link out to it and include a
quick "Or install it locally with Pirut or 'yum install
fedora-install-guide'."

I shortened it a bit.  It might be that we want to make the note class
more visible?

>    * Are the links to "Other languages" really necessary?

I like it, where we have them.  It is an elegant fall-back if the JS
doesn't auto-detect the local language.
