There was a problem with the GBorg section on the left causing the 
GBorg text to push the center column to the right. Does that look like 
what you're seeing? I've fixed it (there was a misplaced </div>, if I 
recall correctly.)

Actually, Safari handles it quite well. (Though see notes below.) I 
generally design initially using Safari and Mozilla. Am now using Opera 
quite a bit more as I see Opera is handling the table quite differently 
than Mozilla and Safari. There were large gaps between the columns: 
seems like there's an extra half-column between the left sidebar and 
the center, the center and right sidebar abut (which is good), and 
there's an extra column width after the right sidebar but before the 

Got this pretty much fixed. There's still a 3px extra space between the 
right sidebar and the black table border, but I'll get to the bottom of 
that as well.

Too small text is a problem. The Latest News and Upcoming Events boxes 
(those the ones you mean?) are set to "x-small". I've bumped them up to

I'm assuming your speaking of the Websites section. I saw that in Opera 
(among others) and fixed it by zeroing out the padding and margin on 
the <dl>

Fixed. They were centered with some left margin/padding. The 
padding/margin has been zeroed and left-aligned.

Unless Andreas wants me to send the files again, I'm going to work on 
them locally. I should have a host where I can post the files as I work 
on them.

Also, unless the Latest News and Upcoming Events are exactly balanced 
in terms of text length, you'll notice that one box may have a greater 
height than the other. What do people think of this? I'd like to 
eliminate it if I can.

Thanks again for the details, especially Konqueror.
