Great work!

This is really Yet Another Proof of how flexible Drupal is. 
And I likt the fact its more than a theme, but that the complete structure 
abnd the theme is a unity. Really great work!
Another great job is the way you managed to hide stuff with CSSand replace it 
with CSS images: Very good downgrading design,

Bu, I would not be writing this is there was not an issue...
Where is Drupal? Not that i think you must mention it, b I have been at  
Kintera, GetActive, IStandFor and DemocracyInAction. But still habe never 
heard of Drupal. Then I have read about ASP, why CS is better and how " has 
armies of volunteer programmers around the world developing and regularly 
contributing new functionality to the platform.". But still no word on 
drupal, its developers or its community.

TAke for eample Bryght: Drupal is the fourth highlighted item. 

I know its not a requirement, nor is it a real hard issue. But I beleive we 
should give eachother credit. You are using Drupal, Drupal used CS. Why hide 
it so far away? Why not tell em right away that CS is a Drupal Altered For 
You (r)?
