Pretty! Like the new layout, clean and elegant. :)

*pout* I think the link on the new article is broken... at least, I couldn't make it work.

That's funny - I checked it twice. Go to the articles section and click on it from there. If that doesn't work, then Network Solutions is being a little bitch, and I'll check on it all again on Tuesday when I'm back on my fast computer (I'm on dial-up, and everything is agonizingly slow right now).

OH!!! I do love the new site
The colors are wonderful. I am glad you like it...

Love the layout of the new site :)

However, it displayed really badly on my PC at work - the old template was sort of employed, only the menu was on the right side of the screen, not the left, and the submenus displayed so far to the right they were unusable.

It's probably just the awful settings I have to use on my work PC - I develop web-based apps, so I have IE7, Mozilla 3 and some other web browsers installed (doctors WILL NOT standardise their equipment for anyone). No doubt there were conflicting settings that confused your site.

I'm guessing it's your computer (sorry). Network Solutions (my host) has set parameters for its templates, and I switched from the small width to the large width (in part because on everyone's computer but my old one, there was a huge white space on the right).

The menu setting is exactly the same as the old one. I didn't change that; it's all still on the left, but there's now a space so that the text is more centered. However, it's definitely still on the left. I'm guessing NW's settings aren't sophisticated enough to handle settings significantly different from the average. Sorry! *pout*

I just checked again, and everything seems fine. Seems there was mucking around with the gateways on the day that I looked, which probably affected things.

I really like the lavender.

EC Question
Hi! I've been lurking for ages, was doing a little research and had a question - and I've no idea where to start looking for the answer, but thought you might: Most of the sources I've found give linen as the "only" fabric for chemises/smocks/shirts - have you seen any examples of wool being used as an under-layer, instead of a middle or over-layer, in Tudor/Elizabethan times?

Re: EC Question
No, I have not. One reason is that linen can be boiled to be cleaned, but it's more difficult to safely wash wool.

There are supposedly some accounts of trained bandsmen wearing a doublet with a falling band but no shirt (as they could not afford to replace the one they had), but this would be uncommon, and anyway, the doublet is still an outer layer.

There is a sleeveless "vest" in the Museum of London that appears to have been knitted for a child, but even this would have been worn over a linen shirt.
