Just as do WAG 1 and WAG 2, you seem to have omitted accessibility _Job 1_,
legible text sizing. In http://www.utexas.edu/wc/first_level/css/main.css I
count 44 instances of font-size. 17 of them set it to .65em, and 22 to
.68em. I don't know how you can sleep at night thinking this is accessible
design, and with fixed width and flyout menus no less. This is accessible
for web designers and mice, not normal humans, much less normal humans with
poorer than average yet fully functional eyesight.

and I am helped."				Psalm 28:7 NIV
