A few things

-styling of quoted boxes is still weird. colour is the same as parent box now and "x wrote" is now above box, not within as before, which is confusing for nested quotes.

- bold/italics are weird if there are line breaks in. check FORA article beginning and end for example; it's not all bold/italic

- FORA tag needs moving from tags to groups, as does FIJL tag. catch you can do this easily right? or how could I?

some content types still aren't displaying properly in tag indexes - library stuff, and maybe not thought, org or book pages either...

ah ok. Library and book are pre-cck - so they use the body field. That doesn't need to go in teaser though.

I think book will be fully cck-ified in 6.x, it's a bit out on it's own at the moment.

Reminds me - loads of old articles are in library as book pages, even though they aren't books. I thought we could transfer them to library pages automagically but we can't do it cleanly (or I can't anyway), so at some point we'll need to copy them into library pages and delete the book version completely. Most of those are old library history things which we'll probably want to put location information in though, so can just update when we do that I guess.

So what can we do?

see here for example: http://libcom.org/tags/iwa

it's the teaser, then a bit more. it looks shite.

edit that's a library page not book, will look for book...

will have to do a custom tpl.php template for book and library to take out the body bit from teasers

- styling in feed text is all different. not bold now in some (dunno if this is a bad thing or not...) but not bold and big in main index top ones.

the teasers in articles looked well good in bold. also now in feeds looks ok but titles are too big. if they were small text but still bold might be ok...

- you said this version of drupal it'd be possible to copy the teaser into the meta descrip - can we do that then?

image border - there's a "padding bottom" somewhere, couldn't find it but will check again. Needs to be margin, not padding for ref.

Teasers - need to overhaul that anyway to sort out library and book display in tag lists. While doing that can look at bold/title etc. I reckon we should go for a custom font weight (like an em) instead of "bold" - that'll make it a bit less stodgy. Or we could use a font like trebuchet for titles, keep verdana for text so it differentiates but not so heavy??

what else?
