I would be interested to know what Bert is doing. Viewing the CSS with 
the FF web developers toolbar and then closing it on Bert's reworking of 
Divya's design causes this.

I did send a private message with screenshot to Bert in December 2010 
about a similar issue when closing FF web developers toolbar on the late 
2010 design.

Both pages show overlapping of elements and dropping of elements is just 
so wrong. Also, diagonal lime and orange technicolor stripes may not 
give someone confidence in using CSS.
