Looks fine in IE 6.0 and Firefox.<br>
<br>
It pretty much looks fine in konqueror, however if the default
background is set to any other color, the background under the ads, and
the bottom of the page is that color, instead of white. (Say I put it
to black... that would be rather disorienting)<br>
<br>
Also, comparing Aaron's site to this one, I must say I agree with most
of the comments. This one has waaaay too much whitespace, and I think
the text is a bit to large. Aaron's site is more more 'tight' and feels
a good deal more profesional, and cleaner. It also takes up less space,
making it easy for me to find what I'm looking for at a glance, instead
of scrolling. Just my $.02.<br>

Looks fine in Firefox 1.5 RC2 on Windows XP.<br>

One thing that feels odd is the Big Flashy Button Things (&quot;<a href="http://wwwredesign.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=2&amp;chap=1" title="Portage" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">

space, but it looks odd.<br>
<br>
Very good, and keep up the good work!<br><span class="sg">

After receiving a ton of very useful feedback from the developer
community I have updated the redesign. It should now be closer to 100%
accessible and it should (hopefully) render perfectly in all browsers
including text only browsers. It now passes XHTML and CSS validation
tests.
  <br>
  <br>
I'm asking for everyone (developers and users alike) to please have a
look at the updated site and send any feedback you may have. I'm
especially interested in feedback from anyone who uses accessibilty
programs such as screen readers or if you are color blind or have any
other accessibilty issues.
  <br>
  <br>
Also, I only use GNU/Linux and I have only tested on the following
browsers:
  <br>
  <br>
Mozilla-1.7
  <br>
firefox-1.0
  <br>
Opera-8.5
  <br>
Internet Explorer-6 under CrossOver Office
  <br>
Epiphany-1.8.2
  <br>
Links-2.1 in text mode and graphics mode.
  <br>
  <br>
If you have access to a Macintosh, Windows, *BSD or any other OS or
Browser please test the site and include your OS and the browser
version in your feedback. I haven't received feedback from Konqueror or
Safari so feedback from those browsers would be much appreciated.
  <br>
  <br>
The only major outstanding issue is the contents of the menu in the
grey bar at the top and what should appear in the 5 purple boxes
directly under them. Currently I have that menu listed in order of what
a new Gentoo user would need to access first. If you have a better idea
of what should be included in this menu or think something important is
being left out please send that in your feedback as well.
  <br>
  <br>
Thanks in advance
  <br>
  <br>
