Some of this is my opinion for improvement, and some are outright mistakes. Use your own judgment in fixing any of it.

The first is a minor appearence thing. Near the start of the page, it has this:

Supported applications are tagged with one or more of the following:


Bundled application — I2P ships with a few officially supported applications that let new users take immediate advantage of some of I2P's more useful capabilities.


Third-party plugin — I2P's plugin system provides convenient deployment of I2P-enabled applications and allows tighter integration with the router. Plugins are [reviewed by the community](http://plugins.i2p) to identify security and anonymity issues.

standalone, standalone/mod

Third-party standalone application — Many standard network applications only require careful setup and configuration to communicate anonymously over I2P. These are tagged with standalone. Some applications, tagged with standalone/mod, require patching to function properly over I2P or to prevent inadvertent disclosure of identifying information such as the user's hostname or external IP address.


Third-party essential network service — Services which on the I2P network are analogous to those provided on the public Internet by hosting providers, ISPs, and Google: eepsite indexes and jump services, search engines, email, DNS-style name services, hosting, proxies, etc. These services focus on boosting the usefulness of the network as a whole, and making network content more discoverable.


Unmaintained — This is used to tag plugins, applications, and services which appear to be unmaintained and may be removed from this listing in the future.

Everything but the first line is in plain italics. I feel like the headings for each of those categories should be formatted a little different. Maybe bold, or all caps, or not italic - something that's different from the description of the category. It's hard to understand that those are category headings, and also, big blocks of italics just make people's eyes move past it all. Changing up the formatting in that part would help.

The next problem is within that quote, where it links to plugins.i2p. It seems like maybe the markup was done wrong or something, and link isn't displaying right, although it still works.

Then, under "Blogging, Forums, and Wikis," it says that Syndie is unmaintained. Of course it isn't maintained a LOT, but there WAS a new release this year and I think I see checkins for it every now and then, and it's still a great project, so I think that label should be removed.

Attached is a general cleanup and redesign patch that addresses all of these issues.

I disagree with marking Syndie as maintained though. It's been almost 2 years since its latest release and in the business of anonymity, I think it would be dangerous to endorse Syndie as maintained.

Please let me know if this patch has crossed any conceptual lines that conflict with the project or if I should approach these kinds of tickets differently. Thank you.
