yes and no. light colored backgrounds are not very visible, e.g. on
laptop screens. and darker backgrounds are hard to read on normal

what do you think about a red border? (see below for an example)

ok for me.

-0. too much <code> (i.e. monospace font) sections make the text hard to

looks only good with mozilla for me (see below...), so I tend to -0.

hmm. the letter bars are centered and the "Apache 2.0 HTTP-Server" in
page header is "centered" (on the right side...). 

However, I moved the warnings title to the left (so you may compare with
the note titles, which are kept centered), but I think, it looks not
very good. I like the centered variant. 

Example: <>

Note, that the warning's border is dashed, but since the MSIE cannot
display dashed lines, he uses solid ones... 

print "Just Another Perl Hacker";
