Yeah, not to pick on those working on this project, since I think it 
generally represents a huge stride in the right direction, but fixed 
width pages are on Nielsen's "Top 10 Web Design Mistakes for 2005" 
[1]. They're a particular problem for me since I have often in the 
past had a very narrow window open onto the site side by side with 
local user documentation I'm writing or reviewing. Not having the 
text flow in a narrow window view is something of a loss. (I know, 
submit patches or shut up... I'll shut up now ;).
