Pete, sorry for taking so long to reply. At the moment, I'm booted
into Windows (I'm still very addicted to certain Windows games, some
of which don't work properly with Wine, and those that do run a little
slow on my 450MHz machine), so I tested with MSIE.

It works as you and I both expect with MSIE. I didn't get a chance to
test with Mozilla, but I suspect the same. Maybe you could download a
copy of Firebird to verify that it looks okay on that, but as to
Opera, there may not be much you can do. Perhaps you can google for
known issues with Opera's CSS support, and there may be workarounds.
