This is pretty nifty. I do not have time to give it a proper look just 
now, but after a glance, I:
- like a lot your modifications to the typography
- like how you highlight the pieces of (bad) code
- like your rendering of the "jump to" links

but am not fond of / convinced by (yet)
- the top banner (but I'm not objective, I like the tree/banana theme)
- the fact that the revalidation box takes so much space, hence making 
the (in)valid banner too low - one has to scroll
- the "help wanted" paragraph takes a bit too much space - but making 
the text shorter is on my TODO list anyway

all for now
