SEUL: Draft of prototype web site

I put this together awhile back and was going to work on it. You know how
those things go. Anyway here it is.

Here is a draft for a prototype web site. Constructing a prototype allows one
to play with ideas. It's basically here's the code, what do you think of it?
Try it out, etc. Also the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words" comes
into play. It is much easier to get an idea across with a picture than with
words. I had put this much together in the hopes of getting a prototype web
site started. It's probably hard to follow and has a number of my own ideas in
it. My hope was to try something. Anyway here it is.
Here is something to start with but use your imagination. I'm looking at a
printout of our current home page. What follows are starting suggestions. Keep
the top line (banner) as is. On the left keep what's there for now except
under 'SEUL groups' where we will now have:
Web Site
Feel free to reorder the list. On the left replace the header (name I'm giving
to the sentence immediately below the banner) with new text (we are dealing
with more than just an OS). The 'Recent News' part either leave it as is or
leave it blank and I will fill it in with something. I know Roger wants it but
I would just as soon get rid of it. Reason, I go to the front page 3 or 4
times a day. It's old news. Below this, things are the same except that I
would like to have both subscribe and unsubscribe functions. Since I don't
know how else to handle it, I'm going to write 'subscribe/unsubscribe seul-
xxx' for the box, whatever, where the customer can subscribe to or unsubscribe
from a mailing list. Also I'm going to leave it up to you how you want to do
things like at the bottom of the page where we currently have:
This page maintained by ...
Contact us at ...
Last modification ...
Also feel free to rearrange the placement of anything. Basically I'm supplying
the text. However anything else you want me to do let me know. Finally,
anywhere I feel I need to make a comment, I will put it in { }.
