I felt the idea of making the rounded corners beautiful instead of

At first the corners are already CSS. I can play a bit with the
border-radius. But more it not possible in my point of view, if we do
not want static box sizes. Posting the link to layouts was not really
helpful for me at all. Maybe, a new layout will not have rounded
corners at all. But until ha new layout can be applied to all pages,
there is other work to be done first.
I understand the culture of the meritocracy, where every suggestion
are responded to with a "do it yourself",
That is not my thing normally. But your message was not really
helpful at all. Maybe, the corners look more ugly on your computer
than on my. Then a screenshot might have been helpful. Many people
did not notice the switch to css instead of using table and fixed
size images for the navbar. So it cannot be that worse. ;-)
If it was up to me, I would introduce CSS-corners right away, even
if the fallback was square corners. Everything is better than
jagged edges. :-)
I am really not sure, if gecko based browsers will display CSS3
corners differnent from the current CSS corners with -moz-border-
radius in the CSS.
Doing it the same way as the majority of pages with rounded corners
(images in the corners, without jagged corners), is also a
Not an option, if you want to display the navbar well with font-sizes
from very small up to extremely large.
For larger text boxes images are an option, for small ones like the
blue ones in the navbar, not.
BTW: look at the page with the free layout, choose larger font
setting in your browser and see how that page breaks totally while
the debian pages still are readable with large fonts. I invested
several hours to find another solution for the navbar with the same
look and feel as the old one with images. But everything did either
not work at all or was totally broken with large fonts.
