Can you be more specific? When I read "stout", I read "fat" or "heavy" 
or "big".

"Heavy" I can see. They're black and white, therefore not very subtle, 
especially in reference to the rest of the page.

Again, I'm not quite sure what you mean. Balance between the week 
groupings (week/icon/icon | week/icon/icon)? Or between the icons? Is it 
an alignment thing?

Cool. Just didn't want this to be an excercise between me and Dean. :)

Bad coding on my part. I was thinking that the section header was an 
<h2>, and didn't verify it in the code before writing my stuff. The 
example we're discussing was an attempt to create the listing entirely 
without tables, and it should be an <h2> if we're going to use that 

However, I'm not convinced that table-less is necessarily the best way. 
I'll play around with it more later.

thanks for the input.
