Since we appear to be undertaking this suggestion, I'd like to share my 
own thoughts.  I'm hoping that the web page re-design is more about look 
and feel than new content.  So, for example, the new "How can I get ESS" 
link is just pointing to 

That way, the web is just a "quick start" overview of the manual.  If 
documentation improvements are necessary, then the changes should be in 
the manual itself rather than some place that a user might not think to 
look.  I don't think I'm explaining this well, so if there are any 
questions, please feel free to ask.
