Actually, fixed width has been something that has been avoided as far as 
design is concerned since day one ... I even seem to recall a whole thread 
on it, since some like the whole 'fixed width' perspective (me included), 
while others like the 'use up what you can of my browser' design ...

Can someone re-post Omar's design?  Make it easier to compare :)  The only 
thing I recall missing from it was the banner on the top of the right 
menu ...

Actually, isn't Lucasz's design already what is live on wwwdevel?  I'm not 
100% sure what the hold up on getting things live is ... but looking at 
wwwdevel, it all looks to be there ...

The only thing the CFV missed, I believe, was links to the two design to 
make the determination ... I just don't remember Omar's design anymore :(
