Moving out some of the web site bloat

A late-night post ... the weekend has slipped away from us with a huge variety of things to catch up on, and a major new project on our web site. The update that we brought in over the new year has been working reasonably, but has been showing signs of "bloat" - too much, too complex to the detriment of the site from a customer perspective. So much of the weekend was spent cleaning and simplifying templates, and I'm hoping that pages uploaded over the next week or two will be cleaner, more navigable, will make better use of the available screen estate for real content ... and will be all together a more pleasant experience.

We're a small team, each will our own role in the company that only has the website as a small part of the total. Browser-specific adjustments that must all interact through the site would be all well and good with a big team (and perhaps necessary if we were in a highly competitive market with online selling and look making a huge impact) but there are other ways - "KISS" or Keep it Simple, Stupid ... which I think was the story of an earlier blog. My target for the update should be that you can find things like that earlier KISS post with great ease, view it nicely and print it out.
