dean: start on dean's conference site
Met with Blair regarding the creation of a small site for a conference of deans happening here in March. Got the specs worked out - only a handful of pages and some pdf forms.
Decided to build the site based on the new templates provided by the central web people. Commented out most of the navigational code on the page. Changed the colour scheme using the base colour they provided and a highlight colour mathematically derived from it. Decided to use colours rather than images for backgrounds. Had to add half a dozen selectors to the custom.css file they provide to handle colouring of elements that inherit values from the central css file and don't look good against the red background in the navigation area. Adding comments to the code as I go, which I'll submit to them when I'm done.
