    In case you missed it, a post went by a few days ago about the
in-progress conversion of the site to use CSS, which will make all the
things folks have been desiring much easier to do.

    I'm sure the www-meisters wouldn't mind help doing that, and once
that's done, people who were interested could do up some demos and
core or whomever could decide what they liked best.

    One thing's for sure, "someone should fix this" bitching from the
peanut gallery will NEVER get it done.
