Hi Stig, and welcome :)

I have already done some of the work you mention, or at least started  
on them.

This one is not correct, since it was a drat to get some  
undertstanding of how Varnish behaves.

The design of the webpage is currently at:
I have the original Illustrator graphics for the logo. We also have a  
smaller logo that fits better on the bottom of a doc/page.
Think of it as the bottom right logo on this page: http:// 
20060314/30091062/VarnishLogo01-0001.jpg but designed in the spirit  
of the main logo now.

I suggest that the docs, when parsed by a DocBook->HTML or DocBook- 
 >PDF script will end up with a design that reflects the website design.
