FWIW, I like designs to
- use as little rules as possble
- be scalable (this one introduces scrollbars at 800x600)
- use real tabs
I think mozilla.org is pretty much what we'd want. Unfortunately,
we'll also need work on the infrastructure side to make this work.
IMHO, a better start would be to clean up the current script so we
can generate the 'old-school' website using CSS completely, and then
do a redesign based on CSS.

Greetings from a web professional,
It's a nice first step into a redesign. The concept is fairly nice and
shows quite a bit of thought.
1) I recommend making the "Home" "Introduction" etc. links plain white.
It's hard to read the special effect (and it requires images which
increases load time, unnecessarily in this case).
2) There's a little too much space in a number of places. Between the
header and the navigation, for instance. That seems a lot of extraneous
3) I think that perhaps you're using too many different colors,
especially in the uses of headers.
4) The markup is very "old school." Your design could easily be
accomplished with fully compliant (X)HTML+CSS and be leaner and load
faster as a result. It would also be more appropriately elegant for such
an elegant program. (Granted the originally is equally "old school")
If there's any interest in this, I could take a look later this week and
bring your design into a standards compliant format and then post for
comments. (If there's any question of my qualifications to take
incredibly table-heavy code and translate it into (X)HTML+CSS, please
see http://www.bgsu.edu for the ugly table version and
http://www.bgsu.edu/music/ for my redesign with one table [that's
largely unnecessary, but for a few pages. I'm working on getting the
table out of there entirely, since there's no tabular data.]).
