Hi, all --

I agree with Shadi -- nice work! Here are a few additional
things I noticed:

In "Example 1:Home [Next example: Info]" I'd recommend
that it say "[Next example: News]" to be consistent with
the left navigation. (Tickets and Survey are consistent.)

The "Sunny spells" graphic at the very top would be a good
candidate for alt="", since the present alt text would be
redundant and perhaps confusing in this position for a
listener (already included in the "Today" line) -- despite
William Loughborough's argument to the contrary on the 
mailing list.

We might want to change "2006" to "2009" everywhere -- 
as well let people know we've worked on this recently. :-)

For the three headline news items (heat wave, violin, 
I'm assuming that the "full story" links should go to the
corresponding articles on the news page -- they're not 
yet. Also: when the teaser ends with three dots 
(ellipsis), it
normally indicates that the exact text is continued in the
full story. This is indeed the case with "heat wave", but
not so with violin or brain stories. We might want to make
them all follow the same convention one way or the other
(initial text with "..." or summary without).

External links: we're not consistent -- killer bees goes 
Google; onions goes to Wikipedia; penguins and parks are 
trombone (news page) goes to Google; air conditioning 
goes to a relevant site. I'm not suggesting that they all
go to the same place, but the 404s should probably go
someplace like the rest. We might also want to indicate
when a link points off-site.
