position)

font-size: 1em is usually pointless except for internal use.

#bodycopy needs a height (e.g. auto) that permits access to all the content.

#lftnav - replace 150px with an em width that eliminates unncessary line
wrap and div spillover.

#rtnav would probably work best mostly or entirely text-align: left, and
with less adjacent whitespace somehow, maybe with a max-width on
#wrapper, depending on your final #lftnav width.

A home page shouldn't have a live link to itself.

Making #lftnav & #rtnav a synchronous width might be a good idea

Helvetica is a poor choice for your Linux visitors:

Nimbus Sans L and/or Luxi Sans are usually installed and much preferred.
Also good if you want a large x-height font that is freely available in
TTF format for all systems are the DejaVu Sans and Bitstream Vera Sans
twins.

If SunSans-Regular is something you prefer, it should be first in the
list, and the list should end with a generic like sans-serif. Consider
eliminating any font-family rule for ordinary body copy
