I'm not able to do side by side here so not sure what's changed but -
Visually feels better to me, my eye seems to sit more easily on the content
- the blue areas seems less imposing, not sure what has changed that. The
menu is  more ordered (pun intended) so is more relaxed on my eye. also I
like the breadcrumbs navigation using colon  - more compact which tightens
up the look of it.

You have reduced the the features of the search form.. will they come back?
Also where am I searching? - all of apache? - all of Forrest? - we need
somehow to tell the user this - don't make them have to think :) - must help
the User feel in control of their destiny.

I'll do MAC full browser test Friday night but IE and Moz are solid!.

 I had a possible job come up this morning which is direct to client so I'm
flat out doing quote which is due close of business Friday. I'll be set to
do  WAI code over weekend possibly Monday too.. I'm thinking that I should
follow your lead with XSLT and add in WAI code- do whatever other HTML
transforms I can..  whatever suites you.. Cheers.
