Important Technology Test


I've finished a draft version of a change to the page design and I was hoping to get a little bit of feedback. The changes are:

  • Drop-Down menu's have a slightly larger font
  • a Google-based site search to the right of the menus
  • a Google-based automated page translation gadget added just below that

Please provide any feedback through the regular form on the site.


Just a quick update to let ya'll know that the changes are now being rolled out. Only new/refreshed pages will have the new format for now - but I normally do a site refresh around the first of the year.

Thanks again!
