Sure, I've put a sample at:

(the logo is the MythTV logo in the theme, however)

I also wanted to say that I love MythWeb! Whomever was responsible 
for putting it together did a really great job... the PHP coding is a 
thing of beauty.  ;-)  Of course, more comments would have been nice, 
but not as much fun!

Anyway, the changes I've made are purely cosmetic, mostly just 
re-arranging or re-naming menus and a few other pieces. I also 
commented out the "quotes" at the top of the page, you could 
certainly comment them back in if you wanted. I think this should 
really be an option in the config file. At any rate, all my changes 
are commented, search for "BD" and you should find them all.

I suppose I should have made these changes to the CVS and submitted 
them but I haven't got the foggiest clue where to start with that. I 
created this as a separate theme for the time being so it doesn't get 
replaced everytime I upgrade MythTV (as it did from 15.1 to 16). 
Hopefully, if people agree, these changes could find their way into 
the Default theme.

Finally, I think that this theme highlights that there may be a 
problem with having the languages not defined on a per Theme basis. 
At least the sub-menu items, perhaps, should be on a theme-by-theme
