Subject [jira] Updated: (FOR-605) CSS enhancements needed for MOTD area inside Table of Contents

Gavin updated FOR-605:

    Attachment: forrest_faq.png

I am investigating this, and it seems there is doubled up use of margins and padding in adjacent
areas of the stylesheet. For instance the width of a page within #content is #menu + #minitoc-area
+ #motd-area. All of these specify widths and margins and padding to differing degrees, and
some overlap each other. I believe there is room here for much improvement. 

However, as this screenshot shows, it seems to be a lot better anyway than on Davids screenshot
of the same page. We have to factor in resolution settings for different users and the fact
you will always get word wrapping at 800x600 when the site is clearly more designed around
1024x762 users.

The stylesheets I would say need a good re-vamp and cleanup, there is a mix of using px,em,%
when I think probably we should be using % a lot more and px a lot less.

> The Message of the Day (MOTD) facility inserts a panel at  the top right of the Table
of Contents (ToC). However this panel interferes with the flow of text in the ToC, forcing
items to be line-wrapped to a narrow width. The MOTD is not properly implemented with CSS,
probably needs its own definition.
