For some reason I didn't see your reply Gav, so sorry for not
responding quicker. One of the vagaries of Gmail I think.
To clarify a bit:

I was more referring to the use of capitalisation in the font-family
names, IMV it's not good practise.

I'll try and take a look. I've thought for a while that it would be a
really good idea to separate the CSS for the navigation into
'interface' and 'style'. Most of the time you really shouldn't need to
touch the interface stuff - unless you are *intending* to break it!

Thanks to you too Gav, thought for a while my comments had resulted in
a stony silence...
