( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

So I made a comment on reddit the other day about the PerlMonks site design: http://www.reddit.com/r/perl/comments/tlied/becoming_a_friar_on_perlmonks/

TL;DR: No one's done the work on a new PerlMonks site design.

Challenge issued, challenge accepted :) I downloaded a copy of the front page and got to work. I have 3 primary goals with this redesign attempt.

1. Tableless layout
2. Responsive on cellphones and other small screen devices.
3. Less visual clutter

I am not changing the color scheme or the layout so it looks the same as it does now.

Can someone post the templates that generate the pages and sections so I can verify that my changes will fit?

I am waiting on the rest of my browser shots of the site and then I will make another post with a link to a github account containing the new design as well as screenshots of the current site versus the new one on desktop browsers and on cellphones. Are there any 'gotchas' I should know about for working on this project? Bring on the commentary!
