Next up is boo.com, which is an easy target, I'll admit, with its broken links and bad HTML. But let's pretend for a minute that it didn't end up branded as one of the biggest dot com flops of the late '90s, and instead see what can be done to fix what's there.

The background has been changed to a solid yellow-orange, instead of that stark, blank white, but I could also imagine a real subtle pattern in there, too.
