Book Layout: How would you format long speeches / sermons?

I'm currently working on converting a religious book from its traditional verse-by-verse format into a verse-less, continuous edition. The book has many, many sermons and lectures. I'm at a loss for how to format them in a way which distinguishes them from the narrative, but isn't too detached from the surrounding text. [more inside]

Web layouts

What is the best resource on layouts in webpages, specifically with the use of CSS and other web technologies? This has always been something that's been tricky for me and I'm wondering if there's something out there that really sums it up well.

How do you work with complex vector files?

I'm trying to make a 24x36" poster from some Excel tables. They're somewhat complex -- half-finished example here (Flickr link). I exported PDFs from Excel and used Inkscape to arrange them. But Inkscape can't handle this much stuff at one time without becoming unusably slow. How can I arrange the layout while keeping everything vector? [more inside]

Looking for MacBook keyboard outline template

I'm searching for a size-accurate outline image of a unibody MacBook keyboard (basically an accurate diagram/wireframe). For this outline file, any format will work, although Vector (.ai, .svg, etc.) would be ideal. I've tried googling but the results tend to be photorealistic images with broad outlines, shadows, etc. I'm looking for a technical drawing like a blueprint. The goal is to make custom keyboard covers with multiple languages by die-cutting and laminating paper; these would be one piece, hence the need for precision. I'm thinking there must be an diagram of MBP keyboards one on the web somewhere... Any advice on where to find one would be highly appreciated. (As far as I know, the keyboard layout is the same for all models except the 11 inch/Air.) Thanks in advance.

How do I get my guides to work across all layers in Illustrator CS6?

Is there any way that I can get guides to stay visible across *all* layers in Illustrator CS6, instead of disappearing when I turn layers off? I'd rather not replace them every time I add a new layer. My google-fu is failing due a bad combination of search terms that keeps returning tutorials. Thank you!

Seeking understanding and tools I need to design a homepage that is a dynamic bar chart.

This weekend I'm setting up a website for an academic event. I'd like the homepage of the site to have large, clickable progress bars that display the number of posts for each of the subpages (News & Announcements, Blog, Events, etc.). As more posts are added to each of the subpages (posts would likely be sorted and displayed by category and tag), its respective progress bar takes up more screen real estate and the tally count listed on/near it increases. Basically, I want the homepage to look like a giant, dynamic bar chart. Is there a freeware (or cheap) template, widget or piece of code that allows me to do this? [more inside]
