just curious if Switchy McLayout is in your future, and why, or why not?


i've been struggling with the fixed-width/flexible question for a while,
and this is interesting.

reading don norman's 'psychology of everyday things' last night, and
back in '88 he was talking about the incredible complexity of this
mysterious new thing 'hypertext'; how it was going to take entire teams
to create documents, instead of being written by just one person.
somehow sparked my thinking about presenting information, separating
content from layout, all that blarney. this new ALA article fired off
another boatload of questions in my mind.
