New look for archives
This should be more readable, controllable with style sheets, and easier 
to cut/paste.

Nice.

And, while you're at it, fix the thing mentioned in that post :)

I usually don't use the webb interface so I can't compare but.

The last post is not linewrapped in konqueror causing side scrolling.

The formatter doesn't wrap the lines, as it is usually preformatted.

I'd still suggest making the text inside the <pre> blocks wrappable. You can do this either by using ordinary <div>s instead of <pre>s for the PostingBody, or adding the following CSS attribute to the PostingBody class in /d/style.css:

  white-space: normal;

This will make user-agents rewrap text, eliminating horizontal scroll bars.

Would be nicer if the quote text is in different color or gray out.

It is in a slightly different color. I think greying it out would make 
it harder to read.

If you look closely, you'll see that each nested quote has a slightly 
smaller font <g>.

The key word there is "usually", however there is still an awful lot of
text that is not meant to be preformatted and is expected to be flowed. In
general, I suspect you will happier readers if you flow the text rather
than keep it the way it is.

I tried it, but it wraps code, too, goofing it all up.
