I'm the one to be beaten to death ;) I have been the guilty person in  
charge of this design. It was done when the support of list and CSS  
was more… how could I say… funky? :)

I guess that's one task that could be done by the QA IG for the QA  
Web site (though really not with a high priority): A beautiful  
template for the QA section of the web site.

Any Web designers in the room up to the challenge? Don't start doing  
something. Just an idea for now.
