It is going to work in any modern browser, which is what we *need* to be
targeting and it won't hurt anyone that doesn't have one. It is a pretty
stock thing to do in the current web design methodologies (even blip.tv
does it).

The one thing I would mention, is that I didn't see it. Part of that is
my large screen (1080p, 24") but the other part is, people on this side
of the world read left to right. If we are going to have this, I would
recommend it be on the left hand side instead.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
