Attached follows a correction on chicken.css that handles the order in menu vs content divs on

So the only changes I propose are adding menu to tests. and salmonella{...}

And if more people like it, some testing on many platforms would be appreciated. Here I can only test on linux mint with firefox and chrome.

Best wishes,

I know this isn't the best comment after pasting a change proposal, but in my overall appreciation of our site I really think it is ugly and deserves a *real* web designer to take care of it. Probably changing color and font scheme would be of high priority to me. The actual design doesn't look professional to me and this project deserves a professional face.

Best wishes,

Dear ones, I changed again CHICKEN wiki design. It is simpler than the one I've pasted before, because I've only changed the chicken.css file. I can't do any further without changing the wiki HTML generation.

Unfortunately I had to put a min-width property on <body>, because the HTML generated for the search box and specific links for wiki edit is not included in a single <div>. So when I shrink the browser window size, they overlap. The min-width is currently the default behaviour.

There are some caveats and it would be really great if someone more experinced than me (and authorized to do so) could correct them:
- generates the <div id='menu' ...>   *after*   the <div id='content' ...> and this messes things up. Menu should be the first content within <body> as it is in most pages.
- doesn't include the search bar and the specific-links for wiki edit.
- salmonella and don't include the default menu nor the search bar and specific links for wiki edit.

After correcting these stuff the next step is to replace chicken.css with the one provided in /

I'm not an experienced web designer so I apologize for the ugly code. ATM the code Just Works and there should be caution when applying it.
Best wishes,

Yeah.  I mean all the aforementioned sites use the same css as the wiki.

Best wishes.
