The subitems do look a bit anemic.  I'll work on this all tonight when
the kids are asleep.

I'd argue that very few (<1%) browsers being used in a less than
800-pixel wide format these days, so I doubt it matters.  Interestingly,
looking at other BSD sites, most of them expect at least that width. 
Only FreeBSD and NetBSD break down correctly - commercial sites like SGI
(Irix) and IBM (AIX) don't.  It's easy enough to correct for, however.
