Mollio *linked* headlines are red (#c00 for unvisited links), but  
that's an easy fix and have in fact done so, returning them to the  
standard link colour.

Also upped the text size a wee bit again (was already increased from  
what's on weo).

The changes I proposed were intentionally light touch, with some input  
from Mollio (probably enough that a credit is reasonable).

And I think light touch change would be A Good Thing.

The existing css is already backed up in CVS. If I could remember how  
to check it out, then I would edit that way, so it's updated in CVS  
and can then be propagated to weo.
