Visually nice,

I like the CSS rollover solution for the top links - its actually 
accessible (vs. similar effects I have seen being used).

My only comment would be to pear down your CSS file.  It could likely be 
peared down by 20-25K without loosing any styling.

Trust CSS inheritance and precedence.

I haven't played around with the site yet to comment on functionality or 
ease of finding information, but my initial sense is that it will take 
some getting used to.


p.s. Oh yeah - and mention Drupal a bit more.
