It's a fixed width theme and Bluemarine is not. I know lots of people like 
fixed width themes and Web sites, but I personally can't stand them. I hate 
having to scroll down a long page when there's 2-4 inches of unused screen 
real-estate on either side of the content. If I want a narrower presentation, 
I'll re-size the browser window (which makes the text wrap, which sets Morbus 
on edge... :^)).
