We would like to give you an opportunity to demonstrate your skills and approach.  This task is based on redesigning a simple web page.  We’ve chosen the Craigslist help page located at http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/ for this purpose.  Please change the look and feel/UI of this one page to mimic the style of the Facebook website.  The goal is that we would like to see if you can re-style a website to a specific look-and feel.  Feel free to re-organize the contents showing on the page with contents you think are the most important ones.  We understand your time is important, so please spend no longer than two hours on this task.
