Funnily enough, that was exactly my thought when producing  
weo.easyweb.co.uk; y'all may note that it was actually produced to a  
deadline of a design compo...

I'm getting pretty close to the point of getting bored with this, and  
just proposing updating it for Drupal 6, and using as is, cos we may  
or may not agree that it's ideal for evolt.org's purposes (still yet  
undefined, /me notes), and it's now getting on for 2 years out of  
date, but it's sure as hell better than we have rn.

(who notes that his update of the weo css breaks a wee bit in IE6 cos  
he'd forgotten that yon browser doesn't do max-width and didn't have a  
win machine to test it on while doing the work)
