Whoah. You've got really weird effects in Mozilla 0.9.7 and Opera 6 there
with the squares in the corner when you scroll the page! (IE6 just scrolls
it as normal.) I'm not sure which browser is right, if any, but it looks

(hmm... looking at the spec on background-attachment and background-position,
my money's on Mozilla's implementation being the correct one. I wonder what
other wacky tricks we can do with that? IE seems to interpret 'fixed' as
'fixed relative to this element's position even if its content scrolls',
which is definitely incorrect but closer to what you'd expect it to be.

Oh, and you'll want to lose the 'pt' units, which are never a good unit
for screen display. Use 'px' for fixed lengths and 'em' units that allow
the user to resize the fonts. I also find the site excessively narrow in
my normal-size window; how's about a liquid layout?
