Not a huge deal. You already took out the left pane (which helps A
LOT!), but would be nice if we could get it totally clean. I wondered if
wrapping the text around it would cause problems. Its not a show stopper
for me, but I was curious of the issues surrounding it.
that create? Is that something that will cause more issues down the
road? Or mainly a need to stay away from it because of accessibility
I'm curious what other folks think about this. I want us to promote our
sponsors, but I'd also like to have a clean page that renders fully from
left to right. (just me though)
