          Attach Stanbol logo for project branding (both bitmap and vectorial versions for white backgrounds). Should match the apache branding requirements.

          Should I include this somewhere under version control? If so where?
          Who takes care of updating the http://incubator.apache.org/stanbol page with the logo?

          I will open a separate jira issue for updating the application logo in the web UI.

          Thanks very much for the logo contribution - note that this issue is not about website content or logos, it's about checking that our branding is in line with the requirements of http://apache.org/foundation/marks/pmcs#checklist

          Anyway, I have committed the logo here:
          http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/stanbol/site/trunk/content/stanbol/images/stanbol-logo

          And added to the website - design is still ugly but with a nice logo now

          Here is the new css for the webpage. I also attach the right version of the logo (i've kept the same name).

          Lise, thanks very much for the CSS and logo, I have activated them at http://incubator.apache.org/stanbol/

          Please cross-check and I'll close this issue if ok.

          I hope you like the skin.
          You can add the attached favicon, with a <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/stanbol/images/favicon.png"/> in the head tag.

          A next step may be having only one h1 tag per page, and adapt the styles to h1/h2 tags.

          I do like the skin, thanks!

          I have activated the favicon now.

          About the h1...hN, the current page structure is like

          <div id="content">
          <h1 class="title">Welcome to Apache Stanbol (incubating)</h1>
          <p>Welcome to Apache Stanbol...,</p>

          <h1 id="how_to_get_involved">How to get involved</h1>
          <h2 id="mailing_lists">Mailing lists</h2>

          Could we keep that and use the "title" class to differentiate the main title?

          This class is enforced by the site generation template, whereas saying "only one h1" means requiring content editors to pay attention, and that's harder

          What do you think?

          Great.

          I've done some CSS tuning to enlarge the main area, but I still think the left column is a bit too wide.

          I would reduce it by 50-80 pixels, which miens also reducing the Stanbol logo.

          WDYT ?

          Go for it...the site is in svn so we can always go back easily if something goes wrong.

          Note that the license box is now narrower than the white main text box, I think they should have the same width.

          I agree on that. I would add also to augment the contrast of text/background on the left menu, for better readability.

          Hi,

          Thanks for the favicon.
          I changed the index.mdtext to generate h2 and h3 titles, and modified the css with your feedback: smaller logo and nav, more contrast, wider main content, and styles for new titles.

          Tell me when you commit it to check the result.

          The latest style by Lise is now in production. We can always improve the design later by opening new issues.
