I went by a website that used to showcase a dozen ways that European types weren’t quite up-to-date about how to present stuff on the web. That’s changed – the Financial Times website is fantastic. All free – and no reg – the best journalism you’ll find in the world outside of the NYTimes or the Economist – it’s all good. And they toned it down – they used to use their trademark orange as the bgcolor to every page.
In related news: Looks OK, but it’s barely functional. If it looked spectacular that’d be one thing – but on my peppy little frankenstein monster of a computer on ADSL, it doesn’t cut it. Someone at Wallpaper* bought the line that goes, “web design sucks… here, use this all-flash interface.”
