Re: EVM Webpage template

We have decided not to use javascript or html tables
in the EVM project homepage. Instead we will use
cascading style sheets (css).

Matteo has created an initial web page template which
he has shared with me. We are working to modify it so
that it renders equally well on IE, Mozilla, Safari and Opera.

Once this is done, I shall put it up for inspection at
my homepage. The location would be:

http://members.lycos.co.uk/anandpillai/evm/homepage/

(This link does not exist now)

After we get a go-ahead from the project managers and
team leaders, we will upload these pages to
evm.sourceforge.net.

Since I dont have access to a Mac, I request the mac
users in this list to verify how well the page renders on
Safari or Icab. I shall do the verification for IE, Mozilla
, Opera and lynx.

I will be uploading the existing pages to the above link
sometime today.

Thanks

Anand
