I've finished with the redesign. Hope y'all like it. The dropdowns all work perfectly in every browser I've tested it in. IE users get a solid color background instead of a translucent background in their dropdowns, but that is the only "problem".
I haven't updated the search page yet, but I need higher access privs before I can do that, and that is pretty low priority anyways.
The sidebar is styled, and somewhat organized. Jeremy will have to decide what other changes need to be made to the sidebar.
So, that's it. If there are any other issues, let me know in the comments.
