    Welcome to the boards anyway

    after looking at it again i think you could make the main page stand out from the background, perhaps by adding a shadow, thats the only thing i can think of.

    Maybe make the header darker from the rest of the page also.

    You should probably use the same look but in a static, not liquid, layout.

    No way! Liquid layouts are your friend. I'm down with the liquid layout. Static layouts are evil. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil. (Except for this one of course. )

    Seriously, I like the site from a layout point of view. For the most part, I'd leave it alone. The colour scheme is nice and the whole layout is aesthetically pleasing.

    I only have two criticisms (and one is very minor and anal):

    1) "Police arrest fileshring students" is missing an 'a' in 'filesharing'.

    2) There are about a zillion sites out there that are taking other people's news, recompiling it, and redisplaying it. Rather than use someone else's stuff, what if you came up with your own news?
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    Liquid layout is ok, but:
    1. Always scale liquid layout to 100% width. ALWAYS. It's really disconcerting to have the page scale to a percentage of the browser width. If you want space on the sides, just add a page margin, or add a cell on either side of the main content with a spacer image of your desired margin width.
    2. Add a spacer image in the cell of your content area so that it can't scale down below a certain width (say, 540 pixels wide).
    3. Utilize your space better. You've got a lot of white space at large resolutions. Again, this is because your nested tables don't scale to 100% width. Use cellspacing within your tables to get even spacing between sections. That's what it's made for.
    4. Apply a style to your bulleted lists so that you don't get a such a big left margin. You can even add custom bullets. Check out http://www.stevenmoseley.com/new/default.htm to see what I mean.

    Other than those little issues, good work. Nice colors, easy on the eyes. Good contrast in text.
