I took a quick look. 

The headings are not right-aligned. Bert, do you have a text-align:left
property set for headings ?  

Also, I would have expected the local links bar to be on the left, and the
link text to be right-aligned, and the "Activities Tech. reports
Translations Software Site index Search" to be alongside it (ie. moved to
the left).  The W3C icon would be to the right.  

Similar for the bottom of the page.

Also "Copyright   1997-2008 W3C (MIT, ERCIM, Keio)" needs $rlm; at the end
or have dir="ltr" applied to the p tag, to make the parenthesis appear in
the right place.
