I didn't intend to sound negative. I just thought it would have been mentioned if the site were to be substantially redesigned to an (x)html + css basis. Instead the minutes talk about 'changing the navigation', which sounds like a more minor adjustment. Of course I'm more than happy to be proven wrong - it's a bit sad that mozilla.org doesn't display the possibilities that having a range of good, standards compliant browsers (particually gecko based browsers) on the market gives. After all, it is quite hard to persuade other people that the browser market is now mature enough to support css layout and valid, (both syntatically and semantically) code if the browser makers themselves don't use it on their main site.

Of course, I realise that all the people at mozilla.org realise this and that, originally the site needed to work under Netscape 4, and so on. My question was really that; is this change also going to fix the use of standards in the way they were intended or is it, as I suspect, a more minor alteration?
