Most font-sizes should have been converted to em, as they are said to be better at scaling than pixels (IE and Opera afaik).

They work in a rather different way compared to pixels though, so some pages may look funny (em is relative to the current font size (Which defaults to 16). Furthermore, it takes into account any ancestor elements' font-sizes. So the 1.0em you may have specified in a deeply-nested element may actually be 16*0.625*0.5*1.0 = 5 (And you'd expect it to be 16 :P)

Anyway, I am off for the night

Unfortunately, IE 6 is rubbish... That is, the page looks funny in that browser (Probably due to it not supporting CSS properly)

What is the "Sobuno promies to replace me years ago" just under the "Latest addition for all servers"? in IE of course.

LOL

Converting it from HTML 4.01 Strict to XHTML 1.1... because it is such a nice way to spend an evening

Well, XHTML is based on XML which makes it a bit more logical built. That is, it will give you an error if an element does not have an end (<br> gives an error, <br /> does not). That said, it seems to be a pain to get working with the popup addon (And javascript in general) so I might just be sticking with Strict

This is not public yet, right? Since I miss a lot of links in the leftmost column.
