Hi Phillipe!

	awsome improvements and lovely news. It's clean, readable,
minimalism friendly, I like it. I had two comments: 

	1) The slogan is a little too technician and long for a "punch"
effect. It's too late to explore something more synthetic? like (kind of
result scriptaculous archieved creating it's slogan "it's about the user
interface, baby!")

Ideas to start a brainstorm for a more synthetic seaside slogan:

	"Interactivity like a breeze" (breeze is kind of beach thing so
compatible with the seaside style)	"Web development like a breeze"
 	"Online applications like you wanted" 
	"Web complexity eased"
	"Put HTML to work for you"
	"Web interactivity made simple"
	Regarding to Smalltalk, a little deiscrete "powered by smalltalk"
logo somewhere is enough to show as visual reference. No more is needed
because the whole seaside "product" is pro smalltalk "trademark", so is
redundant and unecesary "inside" the slogan.

	2) minor adjustments in the layout will prevent the need to scroll. 
		2.1) the slogan should be part of the logo or not at all
(should respect the logo proxemic), medium terms are not good in this layout

	all the best,

Sebastian Sastre
