Well, that was an anticlimax. The redesign didn't take nearly as long as last year when I did this for agla.org. That's the downside of knowledge; I didn't have to look up more than 1 or 2 CSS codes.

As always, please no comment on the content. I know what's bad and I've told the client. That's as much control as I have.

XHTML Strict really isn't that hard; biggest thing to get used to is align+ isn't valid.

Final site, pending content, www.adamebbin.com .

Three very small points: (1) move the box for the newsletter over just a tad so it isn't bumping up against the colored border; (2) make sure the candidate gives you a photo without a shadow behind his head; and (3) you have to use the http: stuff to make a hotlink here in vBulletin. (For lurkers, the link is http://www.adamebbin.com).

Judy,

You spotted the one glitch I haven't figured out yet. I'm having trouble getting padding to work on the form area, though it displays a little better in IE, darnit, so I haven't looked into it lately.

Link is working now.

Judy, thanks for the reminder on that spacing. I tried everything to get padding on that display box, but couldn't get it working. Turns out all I needed to do was put a 5 pixel right margin on the logo.
