Not sure why there would be a horizontal scrollbar, as the site is designed with a width of 730 pixels.

Well, the prolog is recommended by W3C, and it addresses the bug in IE where text-selection becomes impossible if absolute positioning is used (as per glish.com etc.) IMO this bug is a killer: absolute positioning makes it possible to use the same basic template for all pages, and not being able to select text correctly is, well, just unacceptable. I prefer to compromise by splitting the difference between "standards-compliant" and non-compliant browsers, using quirks mode, rather than have the text unselectable and/or hacks to get IE 5x etc to behave. I know this is a religious issue to some, but until this bug is fixed it's quirks mode for me (or relative positioning of course...) Thanks for all the feedback! --Chris.
