Hi Philipp, hi Thomas,

I should react earlier but I changed my mail program to Thunderbird and
my internet connection to DSL so I was busy with these changes.

My only concern is Web-Site. I know this word isn't translated into
german many times and sometimes wrong as "Webseite". It isn't necessary
to have the englsh word. "Webplatz" is exactly that what "website" means.

So we shouldn't change Webplatz to Web-Site.
