It's subtle. The main difference is that each paragraph/topic is
separated by a horizontal line on the home page. This is isn't done on
the secondary page since most other pages will usually center around a
single topic. On the home page, the lines help to visually separate the
major topic areas.

No particular reason other than it was just a design decision. I don't
think you necessarily have to use multiple header sizes, although
sometimes they help. Really big text can actually be harder to read,
depending on the length of the header.
I think the current template focuses attention on the first header in a
more elegant way than just making bigger text. But that's just my
I updated the css file to set a white background colour, as I think
that's what was meant.
Ah, yes. Thank you.
I also plan to change the listboxes into links to another page,
probably resources/relatedsites.html or similar. Using listboxes would

I'll leave this decision to the group. The main goal there was to

-- makes them more likely to miss the bigger message. The dropdowns
were just my solution. Sort of a compromise. I would think a tiny
little PHP (or whatever) script might do the job nicely. It could just
be as simple as:
$page = $_POST['linkdropdown'];
$server = "http://www.gnustep.com";
header("Location: " . $server . "/" . $page . ".html");
There's really no need to even scan the content of the form value. Or
we could just do a separate links pages as you suggest.
