Works fine on my messed up Firefox 2. In fact it works better than
most other sites.

Looking at it for a while here are some of my views:

1. It looks better than grok.zope.org. Great work Wim!

2. The wording on the left is still too long. How about making the
first sentence large and bolder?

3. Would be great with more whitespace inside the top level tabs
(white text on orange background) and please don't give up on getting
it to work with rounded corners

4. What will happen on a page with longer and fuller text such as a
How-to? The wider menu has 3 "columns", could that become 1 column in
non-homepage pages?

5. (more content than design) In the navigation area on the right it
feels like it's all documentation. In fact, "learning" and
"installing" should be part of documentation in my opinion.
