I bow again before your genius.

Width: 100% makes it full-width in Exploder, but respects the 567px width of
the body. Exactly what I wanted - spectacular degradability.

You're my heroine for the whole day. Unless someone figures out the visited
link thing.

Style question about your style sheets: you don't use a space between the
colon and the value. Is that just your own coding convention, or is it a
good idea? I'm all for typing less, but wondered if there was more to it.

Thanks, Shirley :)
