Westover Men's Ministry

This website has a very stately feel to it. It is simple yet dignified. I like the way the two M’s interlock to form a W. It would have been better done in a cleaner, non-Papyrus font. What I favor about it is the concept of how it’s been done. They also have made great use of Flash, without being too overbearing. The gentle fades and subtle gradients put you at ease while browsing the site.
I like that extra effort has been taken to ensure this site validates as XHTML 1.0 Strict, even with the use of Flash. A quick lesson: If you use Dreamweaver to embed a Flash file, it will break your validation. The guys who did this site, Rock Beats Paper, know how to pull this off without a hitch, and I applaud them for it.
They have also ingeniously used PHP in conjunction with a server clock to display the current month and day, as an image. If you pick it apart, you will see that the top of the date badge is a seperate image from the bottom, allowing them to reuse a total of 43 files (12 + 31), instead of 365. Bottom line, this is a solid, elegant site that other churches could and should aspire after.
