What if you make your browser narrower?  Maybe it should have some 
dancing bunnies in whatever space is leftover?

I'm still thinking about the content layout, but I would rather that it 
looks reasonable at 100 pixels wide than have it require 1024+ to 
render -- and still limit the text columns to a reasonable line length.  
Getting CSS to do this right always boggles me.  I think the semantic 
structure is adequately tagged, so it can probably be done with CSS if 
someone wants to try that.

You mean the followed links?  Perhaps I would have to leave the "safety 
of blue" to get something with adequate contrast against both the 
background and the text.

persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress
depends on the unreasonable man.
