Moving to thesite since we're now talking details and the feedback from
thelist seems to be over.

Hm. Looks beige on both of my systems (W2K, MacOS 8.6). That's a funny
part of the spectrum to get consistent across the OS/browser combos.
Usually blues and grays are much easier to duplicate.

Dan, how about something along the lines of #ebebeb? It'll still fit
well with the link colors and it's light enough not to cause contrast

Yeah, they're fixed pixel heights, so they're not adjustable by many
browsers. I'd say
  kill the font-size attribute of all the styles and let people adjust
the size if they need to.

(There are some remnants in that stylesheet that can come out, too, Dan.
Down at the bottom. ;))
