Sorry, I should have been a little more clear. What I meant in my last 
email is that I would get the site to match Aarons current reference and 
then he and I, working together as a team, would then address all the 
issues that were brought up during the last round of feedback. Aarons 
input as the designer will be make it so much easier to make sure those 
accessibilty/other feedack is incorporated in a way that is pleasing to 
look at and integrates with Aarons original design. This is how it 
should have been done from the beginning as I already said in my last 

Sorry for any confusion.

ps. I'm moving all discussion of this to the www-redesign@g.o 
mailing list. I'll start a new thread there right now. Anyone who wants 
to participate should sign up for that list.
