Playing around with fontsizes however reveals that much of the current
design is _very_ sensitive to fontsize changes (eg 800px screen and
fontsize of about 15px or higher severly breaks layout).
When I make pages I always try to make the layout capable of reflowing
correctly in at least the range 50%-200% from 16px fontsize (which is
the default in most browsers). I'll have a go at "liqifying" the pages
to make them more resilient against fontchanges if noone beats me to it
(unfortunately I'm right in the middle of an examperiod currently but
should have time for this in about 2 weeks).

I think you are right and I also think that switching to a DL instead of
TABLE structure as I suggested in my first mail to the list would give a
lot more flexibility in this area to make something that both works and

I think it would be benificial if you, or someone else, made it
available for anybody to upload pages to such a server. Would make it
less difficoult for people to contribute and give links to pages without
getting an addinfested free host.
