Well, don't thank me; I'm still dubious about this change. Thank Björn and
Håkon (and Nick as I recall; Nick?) for persuading me that I am wrong. :-)

Hmm. Well #FCC seems a bit violent as a background for that large an area, but
I backed the message's heading with it and framed the message with half an
em's worth of it. Take a look when Beta #2 goes on-line and let me know what
you think. I'm not quite happy with it yet, but I can't be arsed to futz with
it much more right now either. Any and all suggestions in that department will
be *gratefully* accepted!
