thats not what i meant at all but i guess i do want you to
feel pleased at some point :)

he he, thats a very good point. me neither.
but if you imagine that the menu was a set of graphic
elemnets representing their contents and hence there was no
text (language) inside of the menu would you then agree that
you might want those graphics centered. im trying (baldy) to
explain that i look at things sort of with "design"-eyes (ie
i look for what looks, well, cool) where you are more
looking for what is "pleasing" or natural for the eyes.
desingers in general can be quite pathetic and overlooking
common sense sometimes and maybe im in that position now.
anyway, left aligned it is.

that is so annoying (that people cant see a particular
color). it wasnt really a fantastic color but (if visible)
it clearly lightens up the site IMO. im looking for some
mint ...

i absolutely agree.

to me bad but i thought that we decided to have _all_ the
books on _all_ pages, no?

and i certainly hope that people dont think that i am trying
to please _only_ stas. 
please, everyone on this list, constructive feedback is
extremely useful and welcome. 
as long as anyone has a good and valid argument for wanting
so and so i think we should follow that road.
