Hi Matt,

With the new stylesheet came a bug—originating in the APG stylesheet—; tables are now too wide for moderate screen widths if they have more than two columns. We can quite easily change this. However, this made me think, why is all design pattern information (the characteristics) in a table anyway?

I’ve discussed this with James, and I think it would be interesting to see how the document would look and feel if we used headings in stead of the tables. I’ll create a branch and work on this. I’ll try to have it finished somewhere tonight (10PM PST).

If there is any good reason why this information is in a table, I’d gladly hear about it.
