also notice that in IE7 , the nav links have no thick bottom border, in FF and Chrome they do
is this the effect you are trying to achieve?
p.s. I usually use IE7 for most of what I do on the web, although I do have Firefox 3. and Chrome on my PC
just ran it in IE Tester here, ugly,
really needs to be fixed
not cutting off in Chrome here
p.s. nice theme
I learned about HTML /CSS code just a couple of years ago and did not come up through the tables path. I have never used tables for layout and would find them hard to use now for that purpose. i also find all that inline CSS code you find in some web pages is vary hard to decipher, I am very much used to the cleaner code of web pages using CSS for layout.
in the forums, I find the author gravatars and icons beneath them are harder to read with the dark background, not as distinctive, at least according to my old eyes. I have not checked out the other areas of the web site. your opinion may differ,
p.s. for example, trying to read the notes at the bottom of the thread entry page is harder for me, I need to get closer in to see the contents and “pastie” does not show up on my screen (not highlighted) , as does “you can do much more” and “or Cancel’, these are not highlighted at all for reading. I guess dark on light shows up better for me. “Start thread” at the top of this form entry is not even visible.
Page needs work. for old eyes like mine to read it easily. I find gray on a dark background is not as visble to me as dark on a light background is. Especially if you use a small font like you do at the bottom of the thread entry page.
is net tuts down again or is it just me?
is NET TUTS down now?

right on Justin. this reflects the comments I made in assessing the anniversary entries. many were all the same design layout which after a while becomes very boring. there are limits to what can be done on the flat screen we look at everyday but designers need to stretch their wings.
it would be interesting to look at all of the templates on TF and categorize them by layout. you probably would not find that many. in the end, I go back to web sites for content, not design layout, regardless of how fancy or not it is.
perhaps it is a matter of templates not being very sellable but I really would like to see templates for sale that would cover some of those topics that the writer above mentions. maybe we are not using our imaginations enough to see how some of those already availble could be used for a broad range of uses.
just downloaded the template and tried it. navigating around the pages is not intuitive, but Ido like it.
