I got to an interesting place on a project to display outlines as HTML directories.
As usual, my design is very simple, but I want to -- as always -- open it to be themable by designers. This means that all display elements can be controlled from styles. I already have the architecture built and running for styles and it's very cool.
What I don't have is the basic HTML structure.
That's where you, the friendly geek designer, come in.
Here's the screen shot.
I'm deliberately not showing you the web page because I don't want you to retch in disgust when you see how I did it.
Okay I know I linked to it when I said I wasn't showing it.
Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.
Do it right. Mock it up in static HTML and I'll take what you come up with and put it back in the app, with full credit of course.
And then when it ships, as open source, it will be themable, and we can all have a blast building these beautiful directory sites that link to each other.
