The point is that I love a well laid out page. A few days ago, there was an RPGaDay question on "Jaw-dropping Page Layout". I pretty much stated that almost everything in the RPG space is pedestrian, and not worthy of the term "jaw-dropping". I still stand by that, but it's really nice to see some people paying attention to their pages, rather than just cloning old rule sets then adding minor tweaks to claim a degree of originality.
So, when I saw this post from +Patrick Stuart, I was glad to see people paying attention to page layout, functionality and aesthetics.

I also like that there has been a distinct idea to formulate the pages for consistency, and "meta-stability"...the aim here seems to be ensuring a regular appearance to the pages, but allowing a slightly fluid state so that any conflicts between the layout and the content are reduced. My web design background almost sees this like a fluid page design handled by a well-designed CSS.
Apparently, there are going to be some additional posts regarding this, and I look forward to them. I love to see caring artisans, and love to learn about the specific choices they have made and the rationales behind them.
