All new index page up now. I kept the "parchment" background because the page looked terrible to me bare white, but I'd be interested in comments about a possible change. I don't want a monochrome background at all. The problem with the current one is that it looks a sick PINK in some browsers. EEEWWWWW!!!! LOL
I noticed that pinkish tint some time ago, and figured what the hey, you being of the female persuasion and all...
I just tried loading the page, and one thing that jumps out at me is that I have a horizontal scroll bar, with stuff off the right side of the screen. This did *not* happen last time I visted the site. I normally only see this when some page has one or more objects that exceed the number of pixels my browser puts on the screen at one time, but I don't see anything of that sort readily visible on the page this time.
Looking at the page source I see the left side stuff in a table spec'd at "width=100%" which doesn't seem right since the other table for the rest of the stuff is spec'd at 80% -- the first one maybe oughta be 20%? I've also seen pages where the whole page was one big table with the smaller tables contained within it, each "<td>" element specifying the width of the table inside the bigger one.
I also see one smallish table in there that specifies elements in terms of the number of pixels, rather than as a percentage. I don't normally do this and don't think it's a good idea.
If you want, feel free to email me (much faster than posting back in here) and I can review any changes and we could kick this around some more.
