Out of curiosity, if you're talking about the official MythTV HOWTO (
http://mythtv.org/docs/ ), or as linked from the MythTV homepage (
http://mythtv.org/modules.php?name=MythInstall ), you are editing the
SVN trunk version of docs/mythtv-HOWTO.sgml , right? Or, if you're not
confident of your SGML skills, at least creating plain text (no HTML)
updates (i.e. as patches to docs/mythtv-HOWTO.txt ). The documentation
maintainer has asked for updates only to the SGML or the plain text.

There were several large threads about a redesign of the MythTV homepage
(see, at least,
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/263525#263525 ). There
has also been a /lot/ of work done toward it, however, the person
working on it, Chris Petersen (the guy who originally made, and is still
a main developer on, MythWeb) has been busy with other things. He
usually hangs out on IRC, if you want to try to talk with him.
I /think/ this is the current mockup of the new design:
