[Webcom] New OSGeo Wiki Startpage proposal

+1 for changing the layout
-1 to copy the technical way it was done for Mapbender. 

The technical issue is that OSGeo Wiki has not enabled $wg_RawHtml=true in the LocalSettings.php. This is required to use the table / div tag solution that was used to design the start page proposed by Markus (which his why you were rejected as Spam). 

I strongly recommend to not set $wg_RawHtml=true for the OSGeo Wiki because it will attract all kinds of really ugly spam stuff. 

But Yves' solution http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Francophone does work and with a somewhat more conservative styling :-) should suit us fine. I would suggest to try that out on the discuss page and then copy to Main_Page. 

Markus, Yves, shall we?

Best regards,
