Wholesale, man. I'm still figuring out some of the CSS stuff and this sheet
(well, the original, not mine) is pretty much a "how to make a functional
and kick-ass stylesheet" tutorial, especially with the visual cues from the
actual site up there. I actually am going through and changing some things
around and I need to account for variable font sizes rather than locking it
down, but this was just too good a place to start from. I stand in full
admiration, and I hope that you understand this is not just "Oh, cool,
Adrian's already done everything. Now I don't need to!" This stylesheet has
taught me more about degradeable CSS than anything else I've read.

For those of you that don't know what we're talking about, I lifted
aardvark's stylesheet from the new evolt design that's currently being
hashed out (read more about it on thesite mailing list.)

I think it's because when I went to look at the sheet, IE opened it in
FrontPage 2000, which did its little Microsoft dance on it.
