Looks like the first design is the preferred one. Maybe I just liked
the second because it was the most recent. You're points below are
all good. I'll try to work them all into a couple of new versions and
set up some sub pages as well. As far as the content in the main area
I haven't really though too much about, just the general page layout
really, so I'm open to any suggestions.
Ill tweak the nav as well. I have to use this IE hack to get it
working so I may drop fly outs all together just to be able to avoid
the hack. If we go with main nav items on top and sub navs on the
left we wouldnt really need the flyouts anyway.

I'm afraid I prefer design 1, myself. :) What do you like better
about design 2?
I kind of liked the watery theme on top in design 1. I also liked
better the way the boxes in the main area rendered, though we'll
probably not need them for a typical sub page which will presumably
contain text. Finally, there's more unused space on the left side
in design 2, design 1 seemed more efficient that way.
Note that both design 1 and design 2 have a slight problem in the
rendering of the menu, the word 'documentation' is too long and
runs into the next entry. This is on Firefox 126.96.36.199 on linux.
I'd still like to see the design for a sub-page. After all, we're
mostly going to see such sub pages.
That is, no blue boxes on the side; that's something good on a
front page, and "plain text" in the middle (perhaps with an image
or two). Since I'm not a big fan of pull-down menus for navigation
myself, perhaps some of the sidebar space could be used for
navigation (I'd prefer the left hand side), instead of the menus on
top, or perhaps we could use some of the space for info boxes.
plone.org uses tabs on the top for major areas and a sidebar for
the subsites - it seems to work well for them, so perhaps this
might work for us too. What do people think?
