Yeah, the CSS file is fairly verbose (863 lines!) and there was a  
naming conflict with the navigation also being called sidebar. I've  
fixed it, but only tested it in FireFox 3 for now - I'm going to poke  
at the CSS some more before worry about cross-browser compat.

So, I was trying to make the Sidebar "float" properly on the side, but  
the <pre> tag was giving me trouble, and width issues are fiddly.  
However, if we treat the Tutorial "sidebars" to semantically mean  
"call out" or "tip", then we don't have to float the sidebar, and I  
think it looks a lot nicer.

I also grabbed the "club" portion of the logo and used it to draw  
attention to the sidebar. It's a good lookin' logo but if anyone  
wanted to do some custom art, I bet a stone tablet w/ cave paintings  
or writtings on it might look better :)

I've put in a 'current' symlink to point to /dev version, so that we  
can also start using the cannonical URL:
