Subject Re: Common Visual Design for Geronimo's User Interfaces

When I first saw these I was surprised at what a dramatic difference 
this is over what we sent to Epiq.  As I've already told the Epiq team 
.... great work!!

I also agree that we should spread the style to as many G user 
interfaces as possible.  It would be great if we could come up with some 
  simple format that everything supports - such as all having the banner 
at the top and perhaps even some shaded "primary tasks" area on the 
left.  The tasks could be navigation choices for the web console, 
commands for the debug console, primary links for the web page, etc... 
If we could share the exact image across the build that would really 
help when making changes.
