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notes), and it's now getting on for 2 years out of date, but it's sure as 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)
