the two features that i and the community i represent use most heavily 
of the owl overview is the quick start reference card (the subsections 
of section 2 [1]) and then the hyperlinks within that section.

those are the functionality portion that i am most interested in working 
on preserving for owl 1.1 and have offered to work on (although i would 
not be the one to provide css expertise).
