I was hoping that someone else might stand-up but as there wasn't really
interest I made a draft. This is basically using Okuji's idea of using
CSS for specifying look. I made HTML page and example CSS filling
information. And of course it looks ugly as I didn't spent too much on
tuning it.

At first layout of the page would be hard-coded to grub2 graphical menu
to make it simple, but now I would like to invite people with some
stylish touch (and free time) to try it out and pin-point possible
problems with the layout and possibly design some menu theme that could
be used as a basis for official grub2 (or at least for testing it out)
:). Please be free to use bitmaps, preferably PNG or other lossless
format (so it can be easily converted to another if needed for testing

Contents of the HTML basicly is changeable, div tags are for now
hardcoded to be as they are specified. With a good reason that can be
changed (eg. discuss it before hand).

I haven't yet decided what kind of layout engine there would be but
something simple most likely. There is most likely need to have scroll
bar support for menuitems, haven't figured out yet how define it nicely.
Possibly there needs to be some UI components, eg. way to specify what
kind of progress bar there is, some flags for about it etc.

Final style sheet will be most likely some extension to CSS in order to
give more flexibility, but I think the common concepts should be saved
to make it easier to adapt to it.

All ideas are welcome and now would be good time to share them...
