Ok, I've gotten rid of all of my font-sizes with em's and switched those to
relative sizes and corrected for IE5. Hopefully this will fix the font-size
difference problem. Please let me know if this worked.

Ah, yes that was the phrase I was looking for, too simple to remember :)

Ok, I've adjusted the contrast with these and it should be better now. As
for the copyright, that was done on purpose, to make it sort of fade into
the background, since for the average user, it doesn't need to attract
their eye.

Ah, great catch. Weird how CSE HTMLValidator didn't catch that, or maybe
I missed that warning. Ah well.

Thanks for the reply, greatly appreciated!
