Thanks Timo,

unless I forget something big, this seems like a good summary. In terms 
of style/graphics only, comments I got from other people in the office 
also were that they found it quite nice, though they thought it's 
difficult to comment in depth on the website as a whole by having access 
to fixed pages only.
