On second thoughts, I did see Christoph's point, David. And this applies to all second-level menu 
strips (not just the Home page).

The problem is this: When we land on any page  using the top menu strip, we see a page. We also see 
a second level menu in which none of the items are highlighted. So the visitor could wonder whare 
he is.

Probably it may be better to avoid a full page for any of the top-level menu items.
That means only second-level menu items have content pages. By default, the first menu items in the 
second level menu would be selected.

For example, in the second-level menu strip of the "Home" page, add a "General" menu item at left.
So now the second-level strip would look like [General           Why for Home?        Why for 
Businesses?   ....]
This "General" menu item would be selected by default, and show the content that is currently shown 
on the Home page.
The user can then select the other menu items in the second strip and check specific uses

Hi Christoph,

How on earth did you find out so soon, it was me? :)

We finished the first round yesterday night. Both David and I have the same habit: We brush up 
the content in several passes, and keep doing it till it is perfected. Now that we are in the 
SEO-optimization phase, this habit is going to be very useful! :)

But the point is that the site is ready for the launch. No missing content or links. All the 
required sections fully completed.
The SEO-optimization will continue for the next 2-3 months.

@Duplication: Sometimes the same information is "almost" replicated in different pages, because 
some people search for a specific combination, and the combination of page title, meta tags and 
content has to show up in search engines. That's why we have to provide different combination.

Similarly, right now the description looks "to the point". But after we analyze the Google page 
rankings, we may have to repeat the same information in equivalent terms (on the same page or 
multiple pages), so that their ranking goes up. This would result in a page that looks a bit odd 
to the reader. But finally we need more people to land on the page through search engines, so 
such deliberate repetition is unavoidable. 

@location of "why" pages:
Logically, the reader should come across "why Libreoffice" right AFTER "what is LibreOffice?". 
So we may have to rearrange this. David?

Hi Jaron, David,

thanks a lot to you both! Well appreciated - at the moment it's much fun
to see the site evolve :-) And, I already used the revised text to
invite some more people within our community to join the Design Team.

David, just a side note: I've noticed the new "Why for ..." pages that
provide great content (thanks to the creator, Narayan?). But here some
things I've noticed as well: Very similar information is now available
for "Features" (LibreOffice) and "Home", and the location "Home" might
be misleading for the "Why..." elements. (Example: If the user opened
"Get Help" and just sees "Home" as the main menu item, might he think
that the "Why" elements are located there?) Furthermore, the link to
"See what LibO can do for you" now seems a bit strange.

Could you please tell me whether you are still working on that? If not,
may I provide some more thoughts (structure, punctuation, outline,
links, ...)?

Hi Jaron, :-)

I already proofread Christoph's draft and put it on the site, but many
thanks anyway. ;-)
