TABLE WIDTH for sub-pages (to retain consistency)
fixed width = yes
pixel = 750-800
For bg color:
either some kind of Grey or a darker shade of the same color on the Glaze draft page. That colors (#E5E5CD ?) bleaches out into white too easily on some monitors, which is too bright because the main table BG is going to be white already [at least we agree on that! :-) --KN]
Should we move the reference blog to ULM space?
No. That is unimportant and the change undesirable.
Depts. with their own directories will decide what to do as they see fit. There will be more discussion on this later...
Some will have to be made, probably in PHP. More to be decided later.
We do want the long wide table with the search bar. If possible. it allows us to explain what the catalog is, and have a ask-a-lib image button (which should have alternate text)
A box for text news and other info. is needed after all. Announcement will go there for emergencies, special news, etc.
RULE: the news box will have a set height/width that will not be violated = YES
This way, the box will not change the size of the table. Or contain too much information.
(not said at meeting: We could create special pages as needed and hyperlink to the in this box. That way, the subject being linked to will have all the room it needs for explication. Maybe that goes without saying.--KN)
All are in favor of making the picture a teeny bit smaller to make more room for "white" space and the aforementioned longer table for the search box.
M.M.'s general arrangement is still favored
Committee members still want to use the banner for placing links and content. If a gradient or other texture is used in the banner, readability is the primary need.
