My thought was (once the 3.5.x branch guides start appearing) to shrink the 3.4.x column in the same way as most of the 3.3.x are at the moment.
I think it's a good idea for the most recent legacy guides. When the 3.6.x branch guides start appearing the 3.3.x can be shrunk down even more without losing the guides themselves. Even old CRT screens in 4:3 aspect ratio (like mine) could hold quite a few branches attractively fairly easily.
Unlike with the Dvd Project there is no need to worry about byte-wise size within reason and i think it's important for us to keep the beautiful guides, particularly the 1st set, for historical interest.

The icons Tom lists is part of the "theme" set created by the LO
server/web-site team, and was copied for the NA-DVD web pages to
show what the MIME type of the file linked. Sometimes it does not
work correctly, and sometimes the system causes problems during page
editing. BUT, it is a nice touch that the TDF/LO web site
developers created in the CSS system for the page theme.
I am working on the 3.5.x documentation page so it works well for me
and my potential DVD and web site users. I really need to have some
good column indications that help with showing which links are for
which version of the documents.
As for the colors, well I chose the most least-offensive ones
without going deal into custom color options in Kompozer the WYSIWYG
HTML editor which I use as my default web page editing software on
Ubuntu/Windows. It is free and sometimes you see an update to it.
Later I might change the colors to the "official" colors of the LO
project as listed in one of the LO marketing pages.
To be honest, it would be nice to see the LO documentation wiki page
having some way to separate the "columns" for the 3.3.x, 3.4.x, and
the 3.5.x line documents. What will happen when you add a forth
column for the 3.6.x docs? For me I will just add another color
column and remove the 3.3.x one when all for the chapters of the 3.4
line is filled in. Then will remove the 3.4 column when all of the
3.5 doc chapters are filled in.
The "-2d" part of the documentation page is for the fact that this
is a work in progress and not the default documentation page, YET.
But that will come soon, as I work out a few things in the editing
process this week, as I have the time.

On our current wiki-page we use colour-coded backgrounds
too but it grew organically and i am not sure the colour
choices are still relevant.
Green was originally just to show that you had completed
those chapters when the team was racing to complete 3.3.x
guides. The tan colour was taken from other wiki-pages
that looked quite attractive. The tan seemed to go well
with that particular shade of green.
My thought for the official page
would be to have 1 column instead of 3 but it would be
different colours for different guides. At the moment the
Calc Guide can only show the 3.3.x
At the moment i think the official page looks good because
it's very simple and avoids confusing people. I'm not
sure we should offer separate pages there because that
does make things much more confusing for people.
My proposal for copying Tim's NA Dvd page does assume that
we want to show individual chapters but now i am not so
sure we do.

Here is an idea for the NA-DVD documentation
This format sure makes it easy for you to know
which version the files are for.
The colors do make the different version stand
I also added my "modified" PDF files of the New
Features and Fixes pages, to the documentation
I will be tweaking this page before It goes as
the actual online/DVD documentation page.
When I get more documents for the 3.4/3.5 lines,
I will create a version 2 for the 3.5.4 DVD.
I am waiting now for Erich to get the 3.5.4 .iso
file on the main servers and add the 3.5.4 ISO
page to the list, since it only has:
debian-repo - Recommended
listed on that page http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?type=box
I have no idea why the "debian-repo" is shown,
since I sure would not want to download all the
files listed on that page separately and then go
from there for the install.
