I looked at the install docs and noticed that you're not recommending that
people use the `nesta theme:install` command. Does legibilis require 
something that it doesn't support, or did you have trouble with it?

Nope, I just thought I'd do it the caveman way, by copying the files. I
forgot about the command you mention - have never used it. If there's a
description of how it works I'll try to change the instructions to
accommodate that.

PS. I'm also trying to solve the flattening of DOM nodes that occurs when
one calls innerHTML on a node that contains other nodes. This happens when I
apply dropcap treatments to the first paragraph and it does not look nice. I
haven't dug into that yet - but ideas are welcome:

(the link element gets flattened to a text string, it just annoys the hell
out of me)

Nice work!

One thing though: if you state that it has a focus on readability,
"text-align: justify" might be not the best choice for default styling.

Fair enough. Personally I don't notice a significant reduction in
readability when I change to text-align: left. It's open source though, so
it can be overridden if you wish :-)
