At least I'm hoping so! :-) To be honest, I thought about the document 
structure first, then I implemented the editor to directly support this 
structure. I know that it should hide some stuff and be more user friendly. 
I thought I should get something done first, then actually work with it to 
see what additions would be useful.

Alright. Could someone point me to information on how to post a news item? 
Do I even have the access rights to do this?

That being said, I have just now thought about a rather fundamental change 
to the document structure: I would like to separate "colors" from "styles", 
so that a color could have multiple appearances in different styles and 
most importantly gradients. So with a change to a single color, one could 
adjust multiple styles. It would also save space again in the flat storage 

Best regards,
