Are there places where could improve error reporting [aesthetic wise]?

Hi. I submitted a patch [1] which adds some coloration to
actionpack-2.1.0/lib/action_controller/templates/rescues/layout.erb

and was wondering if there are any other places besides it that could
also use improved error reporting/coloration.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

A nicer error page would certainly be great to have, and this is a
good start. Perhaps the easiest way for people to give feedback would
be to stick up some static HTML somewhere, and people can comment
based on that. There are a few minor issues such as inline styles vs
class declarations, but those can be addressed once there's something
concrete to include.

If there's more information which may be useful, then feel free to
include those in the static html too.

Here is an example of what the current patch does.
Any feedback?

This is a fairly subtle change and to be honest I didn't even notice it
at first.

My advice would be to rethink the design a little more and make some
changes. Once you've made them you then should document each of them
and why you made them, this will help others give you some feedback.

Don't feel constrained too much by the existing layout. If there's room
to improve it then feel free to do so.
