That's what I have already said to Lawrence in person, and also on the 
discussion on facebook: We have many people willing to help, but it will 
certainly not be possible to get a complete identical looking look of 
the pages.

This may have many reasons:
- different ways of programming give different looks
- software restrictions might make several things not possible
- some people just prefer their own design and would remain separate 
from the KLI-project, and that would be the largest problem, losing 
great sources.

I do understand Lawrence' idea, but I'm not sure it's doable. Or maybe 
I'm still thinking wrong about it :-)

PS: I still have in mind my idea of KLI-approved sites; Lawrence thinks 
this might be second step, but in my opinion it should be the first 
step, because that's easier to start with: add a page on top of the 
kli.org saying "search for KLI approved sites" and it gives you lots of 
high quality klingon websites.
