I've been re-thinking the navigation a little myself, too:
First, how many levels are we going to have here? Is it unlimited or
will all content be limited to three, given that the major area is
actually selected from the top bar. If we need to go beyond three
levels in the sidebar (four total) this scheme isn't going to work so
Second, I agree with your increased padding comment. Another similar
concern of mine is that the highlighting indicates a mouseover of the
link's entire padding area, not just the link itself. Unfortunately,
only the link is actually hot. Is this too confusing?
Third, I was considering putting bullet/folder/document icons outboard
each item, similar to this example I did back during our first
I think it would spice up the look slightly and would be trivial
to do. I'll do a test and post it.
