Justin, thank you for reply.

Yes, i had earlier read the link above to check if
dragonflybsd.org was using markdown.

A website is the one of the most important platform that any
project can utilize to reach out to the potential community

Some of the queries i had/have are as follows:

1. Format / layout related

.  is a .GIF file accepted as a image file or does one need to
  strictly adhere to .PNG/.JPG format ?

.  are IFRAME allowed to be inserted in the pages ?

.  are video <DIV> allowed to be used directly in the pages ?
  (the user sees a youtube like video screen and can click to
  see the video)

.  are modifications allowed to the local.css CSS file ?

.  are page style template changes allowed ?

2. Content related

.  can the technical content be written from a DragonFlyBSD
  promotional angle ?

.  what is the recommended div tag class for code/configuration
  snippets ?

.  when referring to source code in DragonFlyBSD repository,
  should a hyperlink be placed for the file or can the code be
  loaded in an IFRAME ?

.  is there a attic to move the old/expired content ? 

3. Widget/Link related

.  is it allowed to associate service widgets like
  - sharethis / bookmark this widget
.  are links to DragonFlyBSD groups on Facebook, twitter
  timelines allowed on website ?

.  subdomain cleanup (eg. wiki.) policy.

Thank you for your time.
