not bad... a little bright for me, but not bad...

one thing that got me, though, looking at your CSS file(s), is that 
your classes and such are in all-caps...  no problem for 
demonstrating some ideas, but i think it would be good if everyone 
followed the existing CSS as a template for how to do it up:


this will just ensure we're all working from the same template and 
will still have valid CSS...

you'll notice that the CSS includes all sorts of comments; mostly 
they were there to help .jeff map the styles to variable names so he 
could write a style changer app... those were unintentionally left in, 
but now i'm glad they're there...

as such, you'll see some styles which have comments like "as 
BodyTextFace"... this just means that those values should match 
the values defined elsewhere... this doesn't mean you *have* to do 
that (although i prefer them matched), but i was proposing it that 
way for consistency in design elements...

also, some other comments, like "(as %)" or "(include units)" 
should hopefully be self-explanatory...

and you saved the HTML through IE, which means it's the post-
parsed HTML as IE sees it, so expect some CSS wonkiness...

if you or anyone else has questions about the CSS, lemme know... 
i'm having trouble checking mail during the day, but i will check 
eventually reply...
