But it should contain every document that the company ever produced and all
the revisions of those documents. Why shouldn't it?

The real problem is coming up with a design and a navigational structure
that will support that way of thinking from the start. I am struggling with
that right now.

My favorite design was;
1. The company logo real nice and big
2. A search box that can search for files by name, date, full-text, author,
revision, etc... without being told which
3. A "go" button (a regular HTML submit button made pretty with CSS)
4. And a very small copyright notice.
