Both the atom logo and the banner area background images came from a page
submitted by frick85. All I have done, is to removed the navigation bar and
some white bars from both images. I personally, like these images and I
cannot agree with your view that "it looks like it's just been thrown
together" with respect to these images.
The navigation bar, page colour, underlining and heading box colours are

The heading boxes started out being much the same as in the 'Mikko' design.
I have just changed them in response to the feedback which I have had from

I have since tried it centered, it sure draws your eyes into it, but others
may think that it is in the wrong place in the centre.

I have not found a way to position dynamic text in the banner area, it just
sits on top of navigation bar and then spills into the area below and I do
not want to use an image.
The reason for sending screen shots was two fold, one to show page style
colours and two to prove that a page can be positioned without using layout
I am interested in access and scalability and would like to know if there
is a way to keep the ratio of an image when the screen size is adjusted?
The atom logo, if no size is assigned to it, will burst over the navigation
bar (will have to look into this) or if it has it's width and height
assigned with percentages values, will distort, when the browser window is
