Subject Re: XML Graphics on staging CMS progress

So, I need to do more testing, but I've fixed the SideNav issues I was
having. They presently collapse globally, and then expand, showing and
highlighting the currently active page (based on location.href).

I'm open to hearing constructive criticism from the crew.


Brief list of Issues:
- the page design is missing something (perhaps remove the logo from
the top-left of page and leave it in the top of the sidenav?)
- get more graphics involved in the design (page graphics? batik graphics? etc.)
- have a solution for non-HTML stuff (Batik demo, javadoc, etc.)
- fix styling of Compliance.html (perhaps using jQuery to style items
in table w innerHTML = 'yes'?)
- improve page title rendering

Once we are ready to actually deploy, there are other issues:
- sync page updates (status, faqs, etc.)
- determine Ideal location from which to deploy (perhaps where it is
in xmlgraphics/site/trunk)

NOTE: I don't think we need to spend *hours* on the Compliance table
issue--I think I can handle it via jQuery.

Kind regards,
