This was related to the old skin. I would like to see some opinions about the new one.

Regarding the design of new.zope.org, what objections would anyone have to modeling the site after some of the more elegant and successful sites on the web - apple.com, cnet.com, yahoo.com, ebay.com, real.com, discovercard.com, travelocity.com, priceline.com. All these sites have a few things in common: 
1. Width = ~700. 
2. The content is centered. 
3. The font size is normal to small except some of the headers. 
I particularly like priceline.com and could very well see the zope logo in place of the priceline logo. I believe this design in it's simplicity, focus, and cleaness adheres more closely to python's similar attributes of being simple, concise, and clean.
