Today, I'd say the main reason it looks the way it does is legacy. We
have code. It's looked that way for a while. nad it works pretty well.

I'm more concerned about the html/layout side of things where we
currently don't have anybody who *really* knows how things are tied
together between the HTML and the CSS. It's very much a guessing game
whenever we try to change something... So if you want to offer your
services, that's a good place to start :D
