8: Header Drop Downs 1

First prototype of the new header design. The original plan was to keep the page content as is and change the headers and footers (dynamic ASP includes). After a second look, the orange and blue seemed a bit too bright for a professional site, but the header navigational drop downs were worth keeping. These would fix the problem of "running out of room" like we had with the tabs, and also allow partner sites to opt in or out of certain subjects. An HTML list is a lot easier to change than a set of graphics.
