Think I accidentally found a keyboard shortcut to send mail by...

It looks Great in Mozz1.5b and IE6 on Win2k (all patched up), 
assuming you intended to stagger the graphics across the top. I do
find the body text bordering on hard to read (at .6em) and I have
excellent eyesite, although the text does resize well...  

Opera, on the other hand does something weird with your banner:
This is what made me wonder if you intended the staggered look I 
saw in IE and  Mozz:
But, again, I think it looks intentional, and therefore wil continue
to assume so until told otherwise :)

Since you said: "hopefully my css stands strong in the face of older 
versions :)" I wiped the dust off my v4.79 NetScrape and pointed it

Now, the name of the game here is degradability, which it does, but
there are a couple of issues that could be taken care of to make it
more useable.  Currently, the big problem, if you'll reference the
screenshot above again, is the "October, 19" link that has moseyed
across the screen.  It, AFAICT is causing the links below it to

clicked, almost like an invisible layer is overlaying the top 9/10
of them. Otherwise, it does surprisingly well :)
