It's time that we get on with creating the page on the main site. So 
unless anyone is going to offer to create/design the page, I'll take 
care of it. I have not had a lot of practice at Silverstripe, so you 
will have to be patient with me.

We have worked on the screenshot protocols which have now been put on 
the website wiki pages[1] (thanks to Klaus! and all other for their 
comments). BTW ... .png's will be the format to use. We will have to

* I will follow the same format as on the "New Features and Fixes" web 
pages[2]. If I understand it correctly, we are to have a 3.4 webpage and 
a 3.3.2 webpage (essentially what we have now on the "New Features and 
Fixes webpage). These pages will be used by website visitors to compare 
the features between both versions of LibreOffice. We are not comparing 
to MSO nor OOo. So, IMO, both pages should have the same page format so 
that our visitors feel comfortable moving from one page to the other.
