Enhancements to/redesign of Fluid Infusion demo pages

Hi Anastasia,

This would be an interesting idea as it would allow us to demonstrate
multiple contexts to show our components can be used and different features
in each.

I think each demo can be a portal in itself:
- features and description
- API documentation
- tutorials
- design considerations
- customizations: "edit code and see effects", different screen sizes, view
just the standalone demo.

All of this reminds me of the wiki gardening we did (2 years ago now) that
produced the Components pages on the wiki:
Ex. http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/List+Reorderer

It's good to come around full circle again and see how we can best
communicate these things to the public. I don't think this will be a simple
undertaking since we have a lot of information in the Wiki and other sources
that will be cross referenced and consolidated.

Part of me thinks we should take inventory of the documentation we have
currently and see if it can be structured better. Perhaps from this we will
have a better idea of what to show in the demo portal (although it's
becoming less a demo portal, and more like a components showroom).

- Jonathan.
