I think I clobbered the weird IE9 scrollbar issue (Chris et al, could
you re-test?). I think it was entering quirks mode, and by changing
the DOCTYPE to html5, I was able to resolve the issue. That was pretty

I also believe I resolved the FOP navigation collapse/expand issue.
For some reason MarkDown wasn't honoring my unordered listing levels
(spaces aren't always spaces?), but I ended up improving the jQuery so
it could handle 'n' nested levels in the process. This was another
pretty annoying 'bug' I discovered, that I could've lived without
needing to resolve. Sheesh!

I also created a Batik Download page, since the current CGI-based one
wasn't working quite right. The new one is based off the FOP Download
page, so I'd appreciate it if a Batik'er could double-check that I
haven't munged anything too badly.
