    I have always wanted to see someone designing a site with non-rectangular windows
    (On the start page, open up a new, transparent window, and use background images to create the illusion of a round window for example)

    Whenever I redesign I try to learn something new and expand my knowledge. So pick something you think is cool or works well and try to accomplish it.

    Tip number one...stay away from using frames!

    Tip number two...check out Cool Home Pages for some design inspiration.

    Tip number three...think back to some of the cool sites you've visited and have enjoyed. What did you like about them, and why? Grab a pencil and paper and start sketching whatever comes to mind.

    Tip number four...do some searches at your favorite webmasters site (Sitepoint, of course!) for some design tips and tutorials...and look around the web too. Sites like Computer Arts and Team Photoshop are my fav's.

    Tip number five....have FUN doing whatever design you decide to create!

    Cheers,

    It's funny that, since XHTML2.0 allows for a new device called XFrames: http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-xframes-20020806/

    XFrames tries to fix the problems associated with the frameset specification in HTML. We will have to wait and see at what rate the browser manufacturers will absorb all the innovations coming out of W3C, such as XFrames, XHTML 2.0 and XHTML+MathML+SVG profiles. After all, specifications are only as useful as the number of successful implementations they spark.

    I'd have to agree.

    OK, I said it, so I had to do it
    Or, at least, I made a simple example
    http://jofa.8bit.co.uk/rw2.htm

    If anyone wants to use it and/or complete the code, go ahead!

    To do:
    Better images (including other styles than "WindowsLookAndFeel")
    Make the code work in all browsers (>=NS4)
    Add minimize/maximize/resize functionality
    Complete redesign - I think an object oriented approach is better
    Example:
    w1 = new RoundWindow('Title', 100, 100, 300, 200);
    w1.show();
    w1.moveTo(200, 200);
    etc...


    Thank you, roxminu, for asking "Any ideas on how to do it?"
