Hi Micheal,

I tend to agree. The homepage is still OK for me, but I do find it 
problematic on TOC-type pages where you really have only a list of links.

My biggest concern is accessibility - I'm not sure how easy it is for a 
color blind person to recognize links if the only difference is color. 
Anyone have any expert (or first hand) knowledge of color-blindedness?

Fully agree with your comment on 'read more'. I'd go a step further and get 
rid of them - linking the title should be enough.
