periods in template page headers


e.g. "Contact." and "About."

As in, they are there and we should get rid of them?

Punctuation in headings is a style decision, and we delegated that to the team who made the ASP.NET version of the template. I don't think we'll be changing this.

That's unfortunate because it's a really poor style decision... especially since it's inconsistent with the homepage and isn't common practice at ALL in web design (it appears only when you want to make people pause/remember that word). Periods make the reader naturally halt while reading, so it doesn't make sense for a header like "About" where their focus should move naturally to the content.
