New Design for 210west.com

Wasn't this an eventful weekend. I have so many things I want to post about but I have been working on this new design for 210west.com, please check it out and tell me what you think. There still is a small bit of tweaking to do but for the most part this is the final design. Now I get to work on all the other templates that are needed to make MT pretty. I am getting the hang of the MT code a lot easier then I thought I would. I really like Movable Type it is a hell of a nice CMS. I made the mistake of ding all the CSS stuff in Dreamweaver (DW). I got all done with the CSS and I have now come to the conclusion that DW does not like the ie5pc box model hack, which I have successfully used in the design of 210west.com. DW eats the hack for breakfast, it mangles it. I do not know why but if I edit a style such as #left that has the hack in it it will mess the definition up and put say a font-face in the middle of the hack definitions. DW should be able to handle this. the box model hack has been around for a while now. for those not familiar with the hack, here is the CSS for the left column:
#left { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: 14px; color: #dedede; position: absolute; top: 100px; left: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 10px; border: 0px; background: #333333; width: 230px; voice-family: "\"}\""; voice-family:inherit; width: 210px; } html>body #left { width: 210px; }
I ended up just using HomeSite and let me tell you, things went a lot smoother. Its cool to be able to say I developed this entire template without a lick of DW.
