Several individuals (Rene, Reece, Daniel et al) have proposed bold
and interesting designs, all (?) of which use CSS-based layout. It
seems like it ought to be possible to have a Boost home page where the
layout was selectable. Along the lines of:
This is some pretty amazing stuff. Beautiful, minimally intrusive,
web design. There are some "angry fruit salads" as well, but overall
its amazing what can be done with pure CSS.
The default style is clearly the one that most people will look at all
of the time, so it should be carefully chosen and designed, but it
should be simple for users to change the appearance of the site if
they so desire.
Should we be boiling down some of this discussion to the "Elements of
Style" and how they should be laid out?
