Looks great and works fine using IE 6.0 with Windows 2000 and Netscape  Communicator
4.77 with Windows 2000 (including the calendar).

Just my personal preferences, I would think there would be more consistency with your
top heading and left side navigation buttons on the pages for "Media Center"
(http://www.isu.edu/media/) and ISU Home (http://www.isu.edu/). I also like buttons that
have a button or link back to the previous page instead of having to go to my browser's
back button. I would have the links on Handouts page open in a new window, especially
links to PDF files. I have a bad habit of clicking on the 'X' in the top right of the
browser window instead of hitting the browser's back button.

Subject: [thelist] Site check request

Hi all,

I've got a site that's just been redesigned using CSS for positioning
(hopefully with graceful degradation in older browsers), with a focus
standards-based design and accessibility.  This is the first serious
project (i.e. non-hobby site) I've attempted with a 'table-less" design
and really learned a lot in the process. I've checked it in:

- IE5 - IE 6 Win XP
- Mozilla 1.5 -1.6a Win XP
- Firebird 0.6.1 Win XP
- Netscape 7.1 Win XP
- Opera 7.11 Win XP (There is a minor positioning glitch here I'm a
little stuck on)
- Netscape 4.78 Win XP  (This is the outdated browser we were most
concerned about graceful degradation for)
- IE 5 Mac OS 9
- Netscape 4.7 Mac OS 9

I don't have easy access to a Mac OSX machine, so I'm especially
interested in how it works in the popular modern Mac browsers, or any
browsers not mentioned above.  Also, if anyone has any feedback on
accessibility, usability, or standards compliance that'd be great too.

Thanks a bazillion! Here's the link:
