Hey Kotra, nice work on the skin. Just wanted to let you know that the rounded tabs aren't appearing on the "page" part of the top tab systems. Steven Walling 22:33, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! Yeah, that was on purpose; the currently active tab ("discussion" on this page) is differentiated from the others by being bold, slightly larger, and without rounded corners. Do you think it would look better with rounded corners? I'm on the fence myself. -kotra 22:45, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
Ditto on the skin work -- it's looking really good! Thanks also for accommodating the "wiki resources" section I created. Hope that is a good structure. I think I agree with Steven -- the square corners look more like a mistake than a feature. Keeping it a pixel larger and bold is good though. -Pete Forsyth 21:19, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the comments! I've gotten rid of the square corners. By the way, the rounded corners are made with a CSS3 attribute (border-radius) that is currently only supported by gecko and webkit browsers (Firefox and Safari mostly), so IE, Opera, etc, will show square corners for all the tabs. Getting it to work in all browsers is a little tricky but possible... but I thought it was such a minor enhancement that it wasn't worth the time. -kotra 03:42, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
I don't think the square corners look *bad*, just the mixture looked a bit like a mistake. So personally I wouldn't worry too much about non-webkit/gecko browsers. -Pete Forsyth 00:33, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
I agree. The corners are consistent now, no mixing. -kotra 05:28, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
