As a graphic designer, I know the old site isn't the stuff beauty pageants are made of.

I also know that the format has allowed me at-a-glance digestion of a lot of information. I've liked the way that I can very quickly scan everything and dive into what what I want to learn more about.

I feel apprehension about the imminent launch of the new design. I hope that the articles and updates remain as accessible as ever

ive got to agree, im a great believer in functionality over looks.. in terms of design i actually think the current one is a backwards step on the last one, as somethings like the GT's etc are not as easily accesible, but the current layout i do like...

My main apprehension is will it work in opera? ie. will the thing be standards complaint, or is it going to be designed to work in the notorious pile of, frankly, ****, that is internet explorer..

Can't speak for Opera, but I can assure you we're not Internet Explorer faithful. Obviously we understand it's a necessary evil, but to give you some idea - the back end of the website (which y'all won't see) has a specific note in it warning not to attempt to use the control in such a browser. Nothing sends a clearer message about how our developers feel about IE. :)

Thanks

yeay.. hurrah...

well opera is the standards compliant browser, so if youre not designing it for Sh**ernet explorer, all should be fine...

If not dont worry.. the opera techies are very active at contacting peoples whos sites dont comply and telling them how to fix it.. lol...

you have restored my faith in your tech guys.. :D
