Once you get used to the sparkle it's not acting as an attention 
attraction any more.

On the second thought it looks like a wider under-title line makes the 
title more significant. Or may be finding a middle ground bettween the two?

I understood that. May be it's a good idea to make the nav widgets 
smaller too! having similar sizes helps. I still think that 
pdf/src/prev/next are from the same family: they all fetch documents.

the stylesheet in the cvs is just fine, any reason for changing it?

ok, sounds good to me. Shouldn't the signature (--Lincoln Stein) be of 
the same color too?

then it spans fine.

a bit better. The menu items look big and the search widget is weird. 
But better than the one in your last preview. see the snapshot.
