Hi all,

Klaus-Jürgen (having worked on the CSS-design for some time) uploaded some alternative designs for our website:

Hallo zusammen.
ich habe jetzt einige Anregungen umgesetzt und entsprechende Screenshots

He asks for comments and proposals (or just agreement ;-)
Vielleicht mal darüber schauen und Anregungen und Kommentare machen.

Here are mine:

The Logo could have the same distance from the left to the upper border, but it shouldn't move the navigation area. It can be positioned nearer to this area.

In my eyes the upper navigation doesn't need the green subline - Christoph's proposal (in LO2 and LO3) looks fine to me.

Together with the shading in the heading area it looks fresher and lighter.

If we remove the green line, the headline in the upper right corner can stay green, especially as the present website
shows a larger font as in your screenshot (File:Website-LO6), providing a better weight between right and left. Moving down might be ok, but not to the bottom of the logo, because of the whitespace inside the logo. I'd move it to the bottom line of the logo text ("The Document Foundation"), perhaps in a slightly larger font - don't know how it looks like, but I could imagine the upper border of the headline at the same height as the bottom line of "LibreOffice".

For the background:
Could you try to stay with grey (as in LO2), but replace the green
corners with white ones?
This might lighten the upper left corner while having a consistent background of the upper border throughout the entire page.

So I'd vote for LO2 ( with slight modifications:
- green headline in the upper right corner not so far moved down
- white instead of green triangles in the corners

By the way: you write about the link colors as blue0 (blue1 underlined on hover). The present website shows the links in blue1, and underlines don't work for all links at any times here (SeaMonkey 2.0.11 on Ubuntu 10.10). "Activated links" are green1 - this works here for "visited links", leading to even more green areas on the page when you come back several times to the same page.

If we stay with blue1 for normal links (just underline on hover), we could use blue0 for visited links.

That's all for the moment (and only my personal opinion - every different or opposing comment welcome).

Hope it helps...
