I found the color and made the change. I'll upload a new image tomorrow.

Squeak is highly-portable, running on almost any platform you could name and you can really truly <i>write once run anywhere</i>. Squeak is the vehicle for a wide range of projects from multimedia applications and educational platforms to commercial web application development. Read on and join in!

>> I think Darius's Innovation section fills out the site nicely. There are no links, because the content area is a child of the parent frame holding the navbar. This is composition, not inheritance, so I can't reach the "current" instvar easily. Altitude can be RESTful, so I could make the whole site RESTful. And if it was Seaside, I'd punt and call a continuation. The site may need to be re-structured, but for now I'm just going to present the Innovation section without links.

I changed it to "Find tools via the developer links".
