Very cool.

I generally like it, but I have two minor quibbles:

One, the logo image seems to flip between two slogans, one of which
(something like "the framework for writing sophisticated web
applications in Smalltalk") is nice and descriptive, if without much
punch, but the other one ("the web framework that takes the web out of
web programming") I can't stand.  IMO, Seaside embraces the web and
the browser, what it takes out is the pain of (raw) HTTP and HTML.
But I'd hate for people to think we were fundamentally anti-web.

Two, it's not obvious that the big category headings like About and
Documentation are themselves links, the sub-categories like
Screenshots are more tempting to click but less interesting.
