there are a lot of colors, but that pink bar is so prominent, i'm 
hoping it minimizes any confusion... again, not my design, but i do 
kinda dig the effect... kinda sugary-sweet... like looking at JPop in 
web form.. sorta...

actually, all the headings were originally designed to be the same 
size... for this site, i wasn't so sure that having them all as 
different sizes really mattered too much... the structure/semantic 
meaning is imparted, but my own experience suggests users don't 
really pay attention to the meaning until you get into the h4 and 
on... that's where i start the indents...

besides, according to the design, the h1 is as big as it was spec'd, 
and i certainly can't go much smaller over 5 more levels...

good question... gotta look and see if that was in the design, or 
just me being snarky in the CSS...

yeah... i see that now... i did up the form last night, so i didn't 
submit it to my full suite of testing (no Mac browsers, no KDE, and 
only viewed on browsers on a win2k laptop... that'll teach me)...

yep... better fix that i guess...

crap... typo i introduced last night when adding styles for 
<legend>... thanks... should have caught that...

i think that text is necessary, but they should have three boxes 
instead of four... however, not my call...

good idea... dunno why i didn't do that...

why not?

after all, it *is* a valid spec, and it's still accessible... i just 
have less browser issues to tackle, and i can code it faster...

however, i do have a table-less i'm working on for algonquin... i 
could show y'all...
