Well, if you're not too scared, you may edit the pages in BeyondCompare 
(or any comparison software). This way you'll see what should be edited 
and what should not. OK, maybe adding content might be tricky if you 
don't know XHTML. But before commiting you could at least check that the 
changes/additions you made are OK this way (and even fix them).

Nop, any .de person watching the news page will get yours. It's 
automatic in Apache.
