Note: this article is out of date now – it’s not referring to the current design of the site.
Well, anyone who visits reasonably often has probably already noticed that we redesigned again a couple of weeks ago. I’ve finally put aside my dislike of fixed-width designs, and used one. It’s based on the 960.gs implementation, turned into a simple Drupal theme.
The choice of fonts was aided a lot by a couple of articles:
- 8 Fonts You Probably Donâ€™t Use in CSS, but Should
- Complete Guide to Pre-Installed Fonts in Linux, Mac, and Windows
Putting these two together, we’ve picked fonts that should display well on all major platforms, and fail over to something reasonable on anything else.
We’re still experimenting a little with the ads. Just a little while ago, we replaced the big ad block in the top left with a random photo. We like the money they bring, but we don’t want to make the site unpleasant to read, either.
Hope you like it – if not, I hope it’s at least readable and not too objectionable.
