Probably will -- not a big priority since so few browsers recognize
min- and max-anything. It'll get there eventually.

:( No idea about this one; can one of the glitch gurus weigh in, or
have I managed to unearth something new?

No, not a huge problem, but certainly strange. Did you mean this
happens in all IEs (5 and 6), or a particular version?

Sure, the border thing is an old issue -- I'm not sure what you mean by
"a solid border along the bottom," though. Do you mean that the bottom
edge of the entire nav div has a solid border? (There's supposed to be
a solid 1px border on all sides of it.)

That's actually the idea, and I'm not entirely sure why it's failing to
do so in some browsers. I've got a position:relative on the content
div, so it should be absolutely positioning with relation to that --
but it only is in the most compliant browsers. Thoughts?

IE drives me nuts... I don't know about this.

Surprisingly that's not the audience at all (details are beyond the
scope of this discussion), and while I'm not 100% set on this font
scheme yet, I'm pretty comfortable with it. We'll see...
Thanks a lot,
