Zope Foundation
Design 1, Version 1

    * Try the nav.
    * Updated the colors of the nav to make it stand out more.
* Added the "extras" box to the top right hand side of the main column.
    * Not going to make a fluid layout because:
o Trading in having the space on the sides for less control over all page layouts. I'm going for functional control in this case over a prettier layout. o The current page is laid out to work on 800 x 600 and above. Most people will view the site at 1024 x 786 or 800 x 600 and not see large gaps on the side. o The simple nature of the site means a thinner page is more appropriate. Most of the content will be text that is easier to read the less wide the page is. This is not some multi column news site that has multiple content boxes.
    * Not going to add a top navigation because:
o Its inconsistent. The navigation should be in one place. period. I find Plone to be confusing and annoying in it's use of seperate nav areas. 2 Navs will cause confusion on the front and back end of things. Im sticking with a standard left hand navigation based on an unordered list that will make sense normally, without a stylesheet, on text readers, mobile browsers...

New "Foundation" page. Try the nav. Only tested on Firefox/Mac so far.

Looks nice. Some comments:

* I get text flowing into each other in the sidebar. "About The Foundation" overlaps whatever is on the next line, with the word "Foundation" on the next line. There's another such instance lower down, where it says "Foundation..Projects?" (can't read).

This is on firefox 1.5 on linux.

Here's my feedback. Some of it is echoing Chris' feedback except I am being more constructive about it. Please don't give up! My main aim is to try to get some aspects of what I liked in version 3, which I think is good for a homepage design, into the sub-page design.

* I think it would be nicer with the margins somewhat smaller. I also liked version 3's smaller marging and background color. You changed the texture here but with a small marging I like the other.

* It would be nice to have optional sidebar boxes on the right, like they are in design 3. Could you create a page with such a box in it?

* I think a list of links on the top, layouted much like the menu in version 3, but without dropdowns, would be useful to have. We could use it to navigate between major sections on a site.

* I'm wondering whether we can do something slightly more exciting with the colors of the navigation sidebar on the left. I liked the use of blue in version 3, but now the blue has mostly gone into the margins. More functional blue, perhaps?
