I have already proposed one structure in an earlier mail. I think we
could have major sections and subsections. Major sections would be
represented by "tabs" and subsections by left hand sidebar. This is
quite standard structure in many website nowadays. The basic design is
like this:
(sorry it's not drupal :) ). We don't of course need every are, for
example Right Area, at least not in every page. The Blog pages could
have a bit different design than the application pages, but they would
share some elements (the main menu etc.).

The major sections could be e.g.:

* BibleTime [the application]
* Blog
(* Forum)
* Develop
* About Us (Imprint could go here, too?)

The main section BibleTime would then include:
* About [or the home page]
* News
* Download
* Documentation
* Help

It's of course possible to just move the old content to the new system
and restructure it later. What do you think, which would be better,
rewrite first or move first?
