Somewhat offtopic, but I could not help but notice the "belga picture" watermarks all over the place. Not looking too good on the site... Even the King Alpbert II closeup in the header of some pages has a (cropped) watermark in it. Placeholder images?

At last they got rid of that ugly nested-table-layout clusterfuck.

And only with 6 months (?) delay :D

Go Albert, u tha man! (or the second man, w/e)

The front-end was cooked up by Internet Architects. I'm glad someone noticed. :)

I heard that the whole Belgian government services was to migrate to Dries, I mean Drupal, is that true?

Too bad they didn't have enough money left to buy the rights to the images after the migration!

Dit betekent dat de koning hem ook zelf kan bijhouden - mits hij kan lezen en schrijven uiteraard. (grapje)
