I decided to change the layout entirely because originally I had not thought about how to present subcontents, so in my opinion there was no "corporate identity" because the various subpages of the old design all had different layouts. And also, they were mostly external HTML and PDF files which would have to be tweaked quite a lot in order to incorporate them into the design of the meta-content. So instead of the 'distinguished' black/green/white look that used Garamond everywhere I decided to go for a more clean (and granted, maybe a bit more boring) design which made content handling more flexible on the other hand. Of course colour and content handling are not related, so in fact if I wanted I could change the entire layout by just replacing (and rewriting) the CSS file.
