After more than a year of using ikiwiki to run bzed.de I thought it would be a good time replace the darkish-brown style by something bright. Also I wanted to get righ of the massive changes I had to do on the template files to make the old layout work.

Unfortunately I hit one of the - in my opinion - major problems in the ikiwiki templates again: You can't rely on all <div>s being available on all pages, which is quite annoying when you need them to style the page with CSS. So I had to make a tiny change to page.tmpl:

Everything else is a bit of CSS in local.css and some images. There are still various things which could be optimized, but there are more important things to do now :).
