The navbar tabs. Floating tabs under the search bar may make the icon  
look 'more comfortable' :)

There is such a thing as ... ahem ... cascading of fonts in a  
stylesheet. No, really. You must try it sometime ;-) But I know  
nothing about free or distro'ed fonts ... BUT ... Trebuchet was one  
of the cascaded defaults in MovableType and WordPress. Just saying.

Points (heh) taken. And there is something wonky with the alignment.

My choice would be to get it closer to the title.

Different color, yes. I still think links and post info should be a  
point smaller than the body of the post :) Which is why we can't  
style in committee, can we ;)

I don't have a problem with the color of the post but #666 could be a  
good substitute to black.
