Did anyone take a look at my solutions/comments in my previous email
regarding how to accomodate people who use giant fonts when viewing the
site? I tried to fit some design time into my schedule, but by the looks
of it I will not be able to work on it until May. In the meantime, I've
attached a rar containing all the latest files. It contains the normal
version and the experimental big-fonts-okay version (using css files in the
folder /css2). Please if someone want to take a stab at making it work
better with giant fonts go ahead by all means.
The index page currently has no print css.
The generic page is a good base for all the other pages still needed
(http://dev.gentoo.org/~swift/www-redesign/roadmap.xml), the print css can
be used for all the printable pages.
To see what the print css looks like, open up generic.html and hit print
preview in your browser (I still have not received response as to how it
looks in various other browsers compared to our reference browsers of
Firefox 1/IE 6).
If someone wants to start on the other pages, that wouldn't hurt. Most of
the formatting is probably already present in generic.html, just copy what
you need for each page from there. Some things that are definitely missing
are the formatting for command/code samples, etc. You should be working
with the sitelevel css file: gentoo.css; you should _not_ need to touch
anything in global.css. It's probably best to leave the bigfontok (css2
folder) stuff alone for now until we get some better bearings on the issue.
Michael: I tried viewing your pages several times but only got a page cannot
be found. I know your site worked before, but not lately. =(

Still waiting on the last two.

The site's been down for past couple of weeks, I think the admin is probably
too busy fixing the site rather than looking into my inquiries.
