  • We should endeavour to use a common CSS framework across all sites (which also implies a common HTML framework - in terms of layout). Right now, each site uses its own CSS adapted from the main website with different classes, etc. Creating a robust and reusable CSS framework would be one of the top priorities; it would serve as the base, and other websites could then build on it.


Two-tier Navigation Proposal

We could have a two-level menu (CSS-only): the top level, consisting of 8 items, and a sub-menu for some of the items (triggered by rollover). The top level menu links would be clickable (therefore it would remain accessible) but the submenu could provide one-click access to specific areas of the website (e.g., 1 click access to the issue tracker from the developer menu item). The most commonly accessed sub-link would be directly under its parent link.
