Does anyone think this is a bit overdone for a toolbar?

div.banner { text-align: center; background: #CCCC99; }
div.banner div.logo { font-size: 24pt; }
div.banner div.menu div.item a:link { color: #FFFFF0; }
div.banner div.menu div.itemselected { color: darkblue; }

<div class=banner>

   <div class=logo>
       <a href="Cover.html"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family:
<div class=menu>
      <div class=item><a href="Sponsors.html">sponsors</a></div>
      <div class=item><a href="Survey.html">survey</a></div>
      <div class=itemselected>introduction</div>
      <div class=item><a href="Bookstore.html">bookstore</a></div>
      <div class=item><a href="Email.html">feedback</a></div>
      <div class=item><a href="Conference.html">connections</a></div>
      <div class=item><a href="FindCityWide.html">find</a></div>


With proper positioning, this could be a vertical or horizontal toolbar.

BTW I assume the new CSS Positioning proposal means there will not be an
explicit columns property. I think it's better to let the author specify the
columnar layout rather than depend on automatic generation.
