So I have a mockup I'm doing for my school's website: http://mickens.us/mockups/shawnee_heights because the current one (http://snh450.k12.ks.us) is terrible.

Any comments and suggestions are appreciated! thanks!

Hi,

Il like the new design, a definate improvement on the old one. As you've said at the bottom of the page - when resized to 8x6 the Tecumseh South link breaks to the second line.

Only thing i might suggest it to increase the lineheight on the body text and maybe reduce its size by, say, .1em.

Just a thought

Cheers

Thanks for the

Thanks for the line-height... Its a touch that too few sites implement and honestly that was one of my beefs for readability. I think I will do that in addition to making the background a little bit gr(a/e)y so that it doesn't corrode the eyes quite so quickly.

Thanks jo_ho!

I think you could do with a visual clue that the menus on the left drop down to reveal more . . . maybe a little downward pointing arrow on the right of each item?

Any good techniques you know of for implementing this? I like how the js and the markup are EASY to manage right now and I really want to avoid hurting the ability for someone less technically inclined than myself from being able to update this as necessary in the future....

Thanks. BTW: I've implemented a change in the line-height and the font-size... Does it look better? Also I know the 8x6 probably still isn't perfect... but thats what happens when I'm no where near a PC that has 8x6... I will on Monday hopefully.

Thanks again guys/gals.

I was going to suggest a simple background image on either the H3 or <a> element.
