I'm caving in on the font-type thing. Not a lot of people have voted, 
but the opinion of those against it are sufficiently strong that I don't 
want to antagonize them. But remember; I will revert this as soon as the 
first complaints start pooring in about ugly fonts! :-)
(although we can always say: set a good default font)

So you're going to implement the necessary changes for the [important] 
and similar sections? Just a div around them and an [em] or [strong] for 
paragraph should be all the markup that's needed; the images should be 
in the CSS.

As far as I'm concerned, we just need to reach agreement on the command 
background color (pre.screen). I'd like a warm color which doesn't 
interfere with the warnings (which should be orange - red, darker for 
more important). We should also take into account that we can't please 
*everyone*; someone will hate the color. What matters is that the color 
fits with the rest, and is subtle enough to not get in the way.

Manuel, what do you think about background-color: #fff9d9; border: 1px 
solid #ddd0b0; ?
