Some feeedback on the current design:
* Some of the main elements that make the Sphinx design nice are missing:
- The navigation bar between the banner and the rest of the content is
- In the right panel, the nice colored boxes that divide the content
vertically are also gone.
- The vertical colored regions to the L and R of the content are gone.
These nicely frame the content.
Can we *start* out using the default Sphinx template and then identify
things we want to change/customize for our purposes. My preference
would be the following order:
1. First address the content. This would include getting the
navigation elements to point to our pages etc.
2. Then come up with a custom color scheme. There are a number of
online tools for helping pick color schemes.
3. Then pick a font for "IPython" and create a banner based on that
and the color scheme.
4. Only then start to make minor tweaks to the actual layout as needed.
I recommend this order of things, because the layout should be created
to support/frame the content, not the other way around.
