Hi, Mark..

Been up all night so please forgive if I miss the mark somehow.. I
just ran it through.. My error messages just are not reflecting what
you have..

What I got is that your various [class values] start with ".." (dot
dot, and I'm sure there must be a standard name, by the way).. If
those are eliminated, are changed to "." (dot), I end up with one
error left: The negative value for #headertoprightutility..

*ALMOST* stumped me with that one.. But.. "Padding" cannot have a
negative value.. In theory, that would simply cause it to eventually
flip backwards as it met itself coming and going basically.. Can only
guess that using "margin" instead *might* get what you want there,
maybe..?

Hope this helps.. :)

Cindy Sue
