I am eager to get started on the site and I think (fervently hope!) that all that we have been learning will begin to make a lot more sense once I am actually putting it to use. Like Trevor, I am most excited about the design aspect and know how I would like it to look but don’t know how realistic it is. I have been focusing on getting my content together including some images so that I don’t have to spend time on that later when I will surely be struggling with XHTML and CSS… One thing I have been wondering about concerns fonts. There are some on Open Office that I am thinking of using that I don’t see in Word. Do all web browsers support all fonts?
I know that Jeremy said that Omeka was more difficult (in terms of code, I think) to use than Word Press but the way it is set up seems a bit more intuitive to me. And I found a theme that I think will work with the Mount Vernon Store Book site.
