i.t site overhaul

One of the things I’m responsible for and love doing is the i.t site. Right now it looks a lot like my static site. Maybe that’s becuse I used my static site as a template. The look is really just the old Wooster homepage with the code updated to XHTML 1.0 Transitional and styled with CSS. I made sure everything validates and that was pretty much it. It’s kind of boring. So Janet asked me to overhaul it and add some additional sections. I decided to try some of the CSS magic I’m learning from A List Apart. You can take a look at the proof of concept.

So what am I doing? First I’m using the three column layout from A List Apart. This layout has all three columns being the same height. Then I added CSS based tabs which I found at the Kalsey Consulting Group. The tabs aren’t overly styled but the design does have the nice advantage that the sublists show up under the main tabbed list. It still needs some work so if you have ideas let me know.
