Sizzling graphics for you to taste! 2004-11-26

I have been working with my bro Andy to give my Early Christian Writings website a nice, new look. Here you can sample the designs that we have cooked up for two of the most important pages, the "text information" page and the "text translation" page. Please, please, please leave a comment to let me know what you think of it, aesthetically or otherwise.
About the menu: basically it takes around 5 seconds for the JavaScript menu to process (this is faster on non-Internet Explorer browsers, especially Firefox). So, when you comment, in addition to the layout and images, you can comment on the JavaScript menu feature. Please give me any ideas that you have. Also, I am open to suggestions for the front page.

thanks,
Peter Kirby

The new look is nice, however, why have it so that it is fixed width, it really annoys me when sites force the text onto a column in the middle of my screen. Users have different resolutions of screen. One of the first (and most often broken) rules of web design is to allow for that! I admit you'd either have to go for plain brown (rather than fancy woodgrain) for the cross bars, or stretch the graphic... but surely it is worth sacrificing a little of the (non-functional) "look" for using all of my screen!

I like the general redesign. Easier on the eyes.

And I prefer the Java menus.

Peter, I like the template with the JavaScript menus. are you going to make the front page match these. (That would be best in my mind.)

I'm not a big fan of JavaScript menus, personally, but some people are digging them. At any rate, looks good.

Best,
