I'm working on the content itself, so no need to concern yourself too 
much with this during the design phase, except where it's needed to 
flesh out the design aspects, of course. As I already mentioned, I think 
a top-level navigation with left sidebar for subnavigation would be nice 
to see (though what you have works too). Also nice for content is the 
ability to easily include one or more blue boxes on the right sidebar.

Don't think we need such functionality yet, but I'll keep my eye out for it.

Right, the left menu doesn't quite work in Firefox 1.5 on linux.

We're first looking into the foundation homepage. I've just written some 
text for it. We'll have news on it too, so a RSS/Atom feed button might 
be nice.

These questions are of course important for the zope.org homepage proper.

Where'd you get the text from? I wasn't sure whether you were writing 
text too. :)

No worries, I've unilaterally declared myself the single point you need 
to talk to about this layout. I can do this as I represent the Zope 
Foundation board and am authorized to make decisions. (and because 
Aroldo, my board partner on zope-web, will hopefully let me get away 
with it. :)
