[Haskell-cafe] The Haskell theme & Haskellers design

You might have seen the post I did yesterday about the Haskell project I'm currently working on. In it I posted an screen shot or a web page, which you can find here:


I think that page illustrates what I was thinking in terms of themes: It actually has yet a different color scheme, though it shares some colors with the basic pallet. What further ties it together, and what I'd like to propose Haskell sites use, is that top bar. It is the same as the top bar used in the Haddock Ocean theme.

For sites, I suggest the top bar appear as it does in that image: The Haskell logotype on the left (linked to haskell.org), and some or all of the community links on the right. (Though I think the lambdas should be smaller versions of the logo.) Specific site branding and navigation goes under.

Another way to use the bar would be like Haddock does: The left side contains the name of a major collection of pages. The links on the right are constant links to major sections.

P.S.: The CSS for the top bar in that image can be found here:
Look for selectors with "topbar" in them.

The CSS for the same bar in Haddock can be found here:
Look for selectors with "package-header" in them.
