[Sigia-l] landing page vs. no landing page
I think you've probably already touched on your answer--or at least a
direction in which your answer could go.

To me, part of this will depends upon how you intend to build this
navigation--that is, will the "top" layer (about us) be a link or will
only items below it? If only items below it, then an "introduction"
sounds feasible, however, if you're making the top layer a link
consistently throughout, then the Introduction may best be served as a
page title for that top layer's page.
I realize you may not have the approach fully nailed down yet, but you can
at least take a look at your options from here and decide which way works
best for the particular site and the content that's being presented.
