Welcome to Stanley Sy's website.

Well, the Toronto Star redesigned the paper, as well as the online site. The newspaper's (the hardcopy kind) masthead logo looks bolder and cleaner. I'm not too sure about the fonts and the layout though.
The paper mimics the extensive use of pastels by the National Post. It's also has headers that are the same style as The Globe and Mail... it's colored, positioned on the top left and serif styled. Except the kerning has been very loose, making the headings get lost in the whole page, unlike the Globe's.
Oh well, maybe I'll get use to it. The website, while being a big improvement, is still looks bad and doesn't follow web standards in letter or spirit (There's no doctype, they're using proprietary body margin attributes when they could have done it simply in CSS, their CMS has horrible non-friendly urls, blah, blah, blah).
Yeah, I worry about things like this, John.
