First I have to admit that I am having a lot of trouble finding old information that I used to find by going first to the public home page and then clicking on a couple of well-worn links.  For example I find it strange that I cannot find a Member-only link on the public home page.  I had to figure out to try http://www.w3.org/Member

But more importantly, none of the new pages when displayed on my default browser (currently IE 7) have scroll bars.  I find it very awkward to have to use the "hand tool" to move up and down each page.  Is there something about the new styling that purposely does not make scroll bars available?

More feedback to follow ...

Subject: New W3C Web Site Launched

Dear Advisory Committee Representatives and Chairs,

Today W3C launched its new Web site:
  http://www.w3.org/

We also launched the new Member site:
  http://www.w3.org/Member/

I hope that you will find the new sites more usable. You will notice  
that some pages are missing content; we plan to continue to add  
content over time and invite your contributions (especially from  
Working Groups).

I expect that over the next few days we will be fixing bugs in style  
sheets, and so forth. Feel free to send comments to site- 
comments@w3.org.

Thank you,

Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications
