As long as it's not horrendous, I'm not too worried about the vertical
positioning. I wasn't going to stress by trying to center it or anything. As
long as it has some space above and below (not flush with the viewport), and
it's not an obscene amount of space, I'm happy.

Surely somebody's done this? It seemed so obvious that I assumed I'd seen it

Ah, good call. Fixed. Curious that most browsers didn't complain when the
box was smaller than the background.

That sounds like a fascinating exercise... for another time ;)
Preloader installed. Hope it works.
I should be paying for this... huge thanks as always.
