Gentle readers, important things are happening this week. At the risk of telling you something you may have heard before – in only four days, on May 1st, ten countries will become members of a European Union that will hopefully not just become larger, but better (alright, over time). Only fifteen years ago, predicting such a development would have been considered hallucinary – and rightly so. So much for lacking European dynamism.
Reflecting this important development, afoe is welcoming the new EU cititzens with a new and improved design. I know – de gustibus non est disputandum – but we like it and hope so will you. By the way, the random banner images already include some pictures from the new member states – we are forestalling a little. Please note that we are now showing abstracts of the three most recent posts from our partner site Living in Europe.net in the sidebar, right under the ‘quicklinks’.
The design has been tested on a good deal of OS/browser combinations. But there will always be the one combination that will not produce results at least close to the visual effect that we have in mind. So please let us know if you are experiencing any difficulties while reading a Fistful of Euros.
Update: Thank you for your comments! I would be great if Safari 1.x as well as IE 5.2.x users could tell us if the remaining display problems have been solved. Thanks in advance!
