This is a table-less design that employs layered DIVs to achieve the block item effect. The design is valid W3C XHTML 1.0 Strict as well as valid CSS Level 1.0/2.0. Several enhancements have been added to this design that will shorten the design process for your site including optimized META tags, RSS Feed auto-discovery tag with included sample rss.xml file, and inclusion of a matching Favicon. This design is also printer, and screen reader friendly, and includes access key tags for the main navigation links.
I really like this design. The dark colors make it very attractive. The links along the right give the page a someone dynamic feel without going overboard. However, the text is definately too overwhelming. Perhaps a larger font or spacing between the lines might let the page breath more.
