Isn't it a bit unconventional to have the link box on the right? I can't say
I've seen it all that often, and I personally tend to look left for web page

I toyed around with your version a bit to throw a little more chaos into the
mix. The changes are:

  - Moved the link box to the left
  - Removed the top navigation bar (it's redundant)
  - Shrunk the C++ Boost graphic and stuck it at the top of the link box
  - Moved "Mailing Lists" up under "Libraries" (generally more important than
bug tracking/feature requests, IMHO)
  - Reordered mailing lists in order of usefulness for users: announcements,
then users, then developers.
  - Added "People" and "More..." links to the "Other Resources" section (to
make the top navigation bar redundant).

It's available at:

It seems that the more/mailing_lists.htm and more/moderators.htm pages are
not yet in CVS...
