Hi all

OK, I've made some changes to the JoPP website.

Everyone can check out the proposed format for:
-listing of issues: http://peerproduction.net/issues/
-table of contents of specific issues: http://peerproduction.net/issues/issue-0/
Comments welcome.

@Franco: Hope the design suits you, we can discuss otherwise.
Also - I can't seem to manage properly of the categories in the top menus (about, issues, special issues)
For example:
I deleted a newly created but in fact useless category ("issue 0 contents") but it still appears in the top menu bar
I can't seem to integrate "issue 1" into the "issues" category

Can you advise or help? - thanks.
Once "issue 1" is set up we can start to integrate content for it...

> The PDF layout used in CSPP it's good for printing but really bad for screen reading. That's why we should provide ePub version or at leat, the OpenDocument version (that can be easily converted to ePub). The CSPP's PDF also lacks of important metadata information, like keywords.
