Okay, thanks for clearing up my concerns regarding graphics, I will stay well clear of logo's excluding of course the main Eve logo.
I've had a play around with a variant of the Eve-Online style I've made based on the mainsite, I'm going to leave this one as it is. This is because some people will want the 100% look and some will also most likely want the mainsite look. What I'm going to do is finish up this one as is and I will then make an Eve-Online-Kill style, which will follow the reds you have linked to.
I have found one problem width the fixed width layout regarding the logo, although the logo background is the same color as a tiling background gif I experimented with, there is a faintly visible gradient line to the left of the logo gif. Why this is is unclear to me at this time, I can of course use a .png file with a transparent background, which does remove this problem but the file size goes from approx 40kb to a whopping 163kb, this will of course adversely affect load times. I could use the dinosaur .jpg format but we all now how naff the pixel resolution is with jpg's. I'll have to have a think on this and ask around on some graphics sites to see if anyone else has encountered this problem.
I'll link up in this topic when I have a working demo of the Kill variant.
