Do you consider yourself a CSS master? If so, how would you like to use your skills to redesign the MIX home page? We recently announced the REMIX contest, and if you submit one of the top three designs, you'll receive paid registration to the MIX07 conference, three nights at The Venetian hotel, and $1,000 USD. Ka-ching! That's over $3,000 USD of Total Vegas Value. Oh...did I mention the Tourneau store near The Venetian? Just saying...you can get a nice watch for $1,000. And if you need help picking one out...I mean...I do like watches. I'd be happy to help. 🙂
Here are only a few of the 100+ REMIX entries from last year's MIX06 event:
If you're looking for more inspiration, here are some places to check out:

I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it. For working with and editing CSS, our Expression Web product rocks! There's a downloadable 60-day trial version that should provide you with more than enough time to completely own this contest. Watch the 26-minute training video on Sophisticated CSS-based Layout and Formatting for a jump start.
