Perhaps there's another way to do what I'm trying to do, but so far no 
one I've asked could see it, and it's pretty basic. See 
http://www.cafeconleche.org/ for what I'm trying to accomplish and then 
start reading the news from Friday September 24 onward to see what 
didn't work. What's on there right now is a hack that still fails if the 
font size is too small.
