There's really no good reason to keep changing things throughout a site.
Maybe I'm just too complicated. ;-)
I do try to keep it simple. But then, little things creep in, like a
login box on the index page which mucks up all the other pages. Then
there is a recipe page which is totally different, yet to keep is
stylistically continuous it uses a similar layout to the other pages but
different. The same for the main recipe page, and the same for the
portraits of producers - all the pages are different yet remain within a
cohesive style. CSS gets super bloated and almost unamageable. Most
sites are very repetitive; mine tend to be "provocative" or semthing
like that. I really don't see an ooption. Although, Nitsan's body tags
sound promising. I'll have to try that; maybe the solution is to do a
series of definitions unique just fo certain pages. :-)
That's simply an example of not thinking things out before you write the code.
First you figure out a layout, then you populate it. You don't pick a
layout, populate it and then change the layout. That leads to a
lackluster and "lack of thought" site.
