Looks like Association Forum has redesigned. Logo spacing seems a little tight, but overall I think it's an improvement. I dig the green headers. But what's up with this page? Check out the left-hand "upcoming events" menu:

Looks like a case of bad CSS inheritance. Luckily it's just happening for that one event.

Speaking of redesigns, NYTimes.com has a new layout. My take: while I can appreciate switching to a 1024 layout, they don't seem to have used the space very well. It's almost harder to read, in my opinion. Also, if you're going to do an XHTML layout why not change the doctype, too? It's not like it's valid HTML 4.01. I do like the use of Georgia better than Times New Roman, but I bet a sans-serif font would be easier on the eyes.
