It's definetely better, much better!

One small graphical glitch: When I hover over the platform icons they 
change their shape, namely grow taller. Nothing serious but looks weird 
and disturbing because the whole row changes, not just the single icon. 
This happens with FF3.0.4/Linux.

The SWORD Project section in home page has sentences without dots (quite 
strangely because the bulleted ones have those!)

I would advertise the FAQ a bit more. Many web pages nowadays have the 
FAQ as a main link. Also it's said to be for "applications", but it's 
actually for CrossWire, modules and applications. Otherwise the FAQ is 
very nicely integrated. Is it updated automatically from the wiki?

Also the Software section could be a main link in the linkbar. I 
immediately noticed that if I browse randomly for a while I want to go 
again to the application section but it can be reached only from the 
home page. There is of course a problem: there's no main page for all 
apps, only platform specific pages. Maybe the Windows page could act as 
a primary page? (I prefer Linux/Mac but we live in the real world...)

The wide linkbar may be problematic for small browser windows (which are 
becoming more important because of raising amount of all kinds of 
handhelds which have internet connection).

Good work all in all. The next big project is the Sword Project pages... :)
