I am about to create custom geocache notes. I even think about writing a web page which takes a little input and generates those notes for everyone interested. First however comes the basic text and design. This is where you come in, where I would like to know your opinion. I tried to make it simple and not too bloated. The text above shouldn't need to be edited (although it is easy to do so). Please also look for awkward wordings. I did my best, but as you might know I am not a native English speaker. Information like the name, the waypoint(s) and the background would of course vary from cache to cache. from cacher to cacher. The box at the bottom can hold a logo if desired. The whole page is intended to be printed either in two or four on letter-sized paper.

So: please have a look and write if you like it or not. And here is the link to the file:

Looks good, but I'll offer a few sugguestions:

Try to hide the cache exactly again the way you found it. >>
Try to rehide the cache exactly the way you found it.

Regardless if you do we ask: >>
Regardless, we ask:

it's content >>
its content (correct possessive form for "it")

Your are right, this is also a nice one for inspiration. However, it's not something to work with for me:

Thanks for your suggestions. I made those changes (and used a better background) for the new version.

Don't feel bad, Quinn.  I think KFL just wanted one usable for multiple listing sites and wanted to respect the copyright notice of the NC sheet.
