I was tempted to grab some content from the current site, but that implied 
using CSS and I didn't want to go that way yet.  That's step 2 for me.  I 
wanted to get *something* out ASAP.

See above.  There's a bit too much discussion going on regarding the design 
to my liking.  We must first make a final decision upon the design before I 
start fine tuning with CSS

Indeed.  It's HTML related.  If you check the top and bottom spacing in 
different browsers you will see a LOT of difference (IE has small spacing, 
NS and Opera lots).  I will implement part of the current CSS file to 
adjust the menu and the content.

you are right.  It's only 1 pixel high. I've adjusted it.

Yes please.  It will make the creation of the skin a lot easier.  I do have 
a CVS checkout, isn't your doc in there?
