Thank you for the rounding fix!
I also have figured out the "guillotine" error, and I will explain it in 
case someone else might find it useful:

1) it was not the guillotine error, but in the "normalising.css" there 
is the standard settings for hyperlinks:

A:link {color: blue;
background: transparent; <-- this was the culprit [so I disabled it]
text-decoration: none}

A:visited {color: red;
background: transparent; <-- this was the culprit
text-decoration: none}

take look now: http://samp.ivosite.com  .. fixed!
