New Layout

The site now uses a fixed menu at top left. (Update: Internet Explorer for Windows is catching on here)

If this site's truly broken for your browser send us a message with details via the 'Contact' page and we'll fix things.

Webmaster notes: Internet Explorer/Windows bugs - I.E. chokes on new lines in the menu list here ... line breaks in the HTML trigger margins between the list elements. IE still doesn't respect CSS position: fixed too. "html { font-size: 100%;}" seems to be useful to address font display differences between web browser software.
