|As Ross developed more material for his site, the extremely narrow design became very limiting. The menu was an image map, making it impossible for Ross to easily make alterations.||The new design preserves the look but is considerably wider, providing the additional content space. The top banner is shorter, allowing more content to be seen when arriving on a page.|
My work on Ross' site was primarily technical. I incorporated XHTML and CSS standards, provided a template for Ross to use (he maintains his own sites), and built a richer drop-down menu bar along the top.
