Hi Ladies & Gents,

Based around parts of the discussion in issue #50, I'm opening this issue for pinning down the look/theme of any revision to the w3fools site. (thus it is the sister to issue #59 about revising the text of w3fools).

My suggestions at this initial stage are to use an existing theme, perhaps based off of twitter bootstrap, and then put the content drafted elsewhere into that theme and tweak the look at the end.

http://bootswatch.com has some cheery bootstrap-related themes that we could use as a simple starting point, or we could find a nice parallax site theme somewhere. I think the end result should definitely stay a single-page site for simplicity of maintenance, and anything excessively complex could live in a wiki off the site.

So far, my suggestions

Or finally, it's certainly an option to just reuse the existing css/colors of w3fools with new content inside them (though I think a little bit of brightening up would be nice).

Thoughts? Other alternative themes?

They all look good. Reusing the existing CSS/anything of W3Fools wouldn't hurt, maybe a little brightening up but I like it dark, the way it is.

Keeping the old styling unless someone wants to PR something that looks better and is just as minimal in code.
