I like it! I think your colors are more appropriate than mine.
I have attached matching c, d, and quote.

In theory it is possible to make the header items scale better (make the
items always fill the box as the font size is changed). To do this, you
can try specifying item dimensions in terms of em units instead of %.
However, most sites out there don't bother with this. It's just a
personal schizoid item on my checklist.

Requesting the use of 'em' is definitely a good thing. As typical screen
resolutions are ranging from 800 to 2k+ pixels in width, em is the only
way to ensure that web pages will display in a similar manner on most
screens.

I'd stay away from 'px' as much as I can .....   ;-)

I wish there was a way to associate window width with base font size.
That would be ideal. You could make the website resize along with the
window without re-wrapping the text. This goes along with the idea that
there is an ideal line width (in number of characters) for reading.

No! That's a fine way to screw up a site for those of us using higher 
resolutions.

Only CSS?  Seemed doubtful from the start, and now I see indeed that 
you've used XHTML as well.

And that you haven't got round to validating yet....

A few more nitpicks:

1. The "sesarch" [sic] link isn't going to work if the user disables JS. 
 Turn it back into a button.

2. Why is there an alternative stylesheet called "Printer"?  And I can't 
see the difference between the two stylesheets at the moment....
