Subject Some new ideas..
Date Thu, 27 Dec 2001 16:40:19 GMT

I just wrote a small mod_perl handler so everybody can take a look at
different CSS ideas without needing to copy a lot of files.

You can try
(notice "styleX" where X is a number)
The chosen style is also used on all subsequent pages (Take a look at those,

and take look at different colored H2/H3 Styles:
style1: light blue background, dark blue letters
style2: light blue background, black letters
style21: as style 2, but H1 has got black letters, too
style3: light blue background, white letters
style4: no background, dark blue letters
style5: no background, light blue letters
style6: no background, blue (0000ff) letters
style7: no background, black letters

Philip. Stas, what do you see?

Maybe we could decide on a final basic structure (width of navbar/content,
design of the navbar-buttons...) and than contiune fine-tuning (Headline
Colors, Widgets..)

The only real differnece between Allans and mine version are the NavBar
I find mine more pleasant-looking, because the lot of black lines in Allans
version are sort of irritating (at least to me).
I don't really care about the mod_perl logo in the top left corner, although
I think that you can see the camel better in the original version (white
