Looks okay to me, same with the index of threads. What colour is that
background? Salmon? *:)

One thing I would say, just throwing this out for discussion, the fonts
seem a little small to me.

Now admittedly, I'm sitting in front of a 19" monitor running at 1600 x
1200, but I have my fonts set at a size to offset that.

Why change the default font size at all? Isn't there a case to be made
for leaving the font size at whatever the user finds comfortable, ie:
their own settings.

After all, we're not talking about pages that are 'design' critical
(k10k for instances) as far as font size goes, they are purely textual
information that people are going to be wading through and reading.

Just an observation.
