Opinions on Style Please

I am working on a redesign of the Dictionary.

This is the current style: http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/kite.html

Alternative 1: http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/layout-1.html

Alternative 2: http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/layout-2.html

Alternative 3: http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/layout-3.html

Which do you like?

What are the best features? Should I try to combine the best features and create a new one? Any suggestions?

Hi MathsisFun;

Alternative 3 looks best to me. The search bar is up on top a good distance away. The text fit best on my browser with this one.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

I agree with bobby. I think having the alphabet on top of the ad looks better than the other way around.
1) loses points with me because I have to scroll down to see XYZ.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

To me 2 and 3 look the same, and I like them both.

Hi Maths;

Looks fine. No need to tinker with it anymore.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
