You can create a png and then run png2gif

I'd rather not.

I know, that was a quick hack. I'm not sure what color to use. I wasn't 
sure that this is the bg image/color that we are going to use.

BTW, in the menu, do we want to have it as it's now, or may be use only 
lowercase for items? i'm starting to like all lowercase ;)

:( So no solution for that?

Also need ideas on how to solve the NS4 crash. Hint: it crashes on the 
ads section. First of all it won't render the rest of the page if you 
put a little into that last ad box, but if you put all three books it 
goes down.
