I'm the one who has designed the CSS, and I'm the one who is usually 
using small windows (Mac User here)  and never have its windows in a 
full screen mode. The meta is going under the window only when it 
arrives to the box. You didn't propose any replacement solution.

1. put the menu with a z-index lower than the content so the meta 
will go on top of it... not necessary good too.
2. remove the menu`
3. put a fixed width for the content so it pushes the menu on the 
right (IMHO worse for small screen users)
4. wrap the meta.

What do you prefer?
