If you came around recently, you probably noticed some changes in the look and in the amount of information on the home page. It is now globally in its final state.
A very few changes have also been made in the XHTML structure, these changes involving grouping the blog entries and the “as seen elsewhere” briefs in a “blog” div, moving around the date and the subject of blog entries, and replace links on briefs titles by a “Read more…” link.
As for the content, the home page must avoid to be heavy, so I removed a lot of stuff, put only one blog entry (and cut it if it’s too long), 3 briefs and drastically reduced the amount of Releases, Articles, and ToDo List items.
The CSS, on the other hand, got a lot of changes, starting with a split of the stylesheet in several files. Some other changes involve bigger default font sizes, and a proper styling of most of the html elements in the page (much more were left with default style, previously). <teasing>I’m working on a better visual experience (which will probably render pretty bad in MSIE), all of which will happen without touching a single line of HTML code. I’m myself impressed by the result ;)</teasing>
The XSL stylesheets also got its load of refactoring, by splitting in smaller individual units, and its improvements such as adding ids in the blog so that the links to the blog entries on the home page go directly to the right item. Next step there will be to improve the RDF parsing.
Next global step for the site will be to have more subsections and pages. Stay tuned.
