A new look for wineanorak
I've been working for a while on changing the look of wineanorak. The old design had been tweaked a little, but wasn't much changed since the launch of the site proper in early 2000 (although a previous version of the site, as a sort of hobby page, dated back to internet pre-history - 1997). The new design isn't set in stone yet, but I've tried to follow research on how people actually use sites, without using too many snazzy navigational menus. I've also tried to make the site compatible with all browsers (did you know ie6 is still the most widely used?), and I've therefore avoided using the otherwise elegant css for designing the pages. Using tables for design will no doubt upset web designers on quite a deep level.
I've also thought quite a bit about bringing the blog and website together more closely. But I've decided against it. You just couldn't do the same sort of in-depth articles as blog posts, so the division will remain. Also, blogs are hard to navigate through after the event. A few weeks after posting, it becomes tricky for readers to navigate all the way through a blog. So I've kept the two running in parallel.
What do you think?
