    Thanks for the thoughts ... a new domain name is on the way, something shorter and easier to type. As for the execution times - my 'server' is 'powered' by a 300mhz Cyrix MII chip with 64mb of RAM - I'll be shifting the whole thing to a new box later in the week.

    Well, matters of personnal taste ...
    I like white bg
    I like full width layouts. 700 pixels width pages just look silly on my 1600x1200 monitor. Actually to be more accurate, I like almost-full-width layouts. Yours would look better IMO at 95% width, like this the thin grey border wouldnt be "merged" with the scrollbar or page edge. The counterpart of full width being the fact you need to write rather lengthy posts, or they turned as a single line at high rez which also looks silly :)

    What surprises me more is the fact that no one screamed at <TABLE> :)

    Cause some people just have to bitch about them...
    Tables intended to use for printing tabular data, not for design layout how it was used for ages now... Someone heard that tables are bad, but haven't got into details *why* they are bad... Therefor you have this efefct where someone runs screaming "tables are bad" without actually understanding why.
    btw, don't take it as a personal insult, ozh... It's just how situation in general looks like.

    "For the last seven years, we've been pushing Web design further and further down the same path. Once we found out that we could take tables and bend them into design, we jumped all over the idea. But at their heart, tables are grids, their rows and cells strict and confining. We could change their shapes, yes, but only in groups. We spanned the rows and columns in search of more flexibility, trying to sneak our way around the limitations. But there, in amongst those rows and cells, we got trapped into a certain way of thinking: this was possible and that was not; this could be done but that was too much effort to be worthwhile.
    Like tables, there is another highly limiting structure that's composed of rows and cells: a prison. It's time for designers to break out. "
