Maybe you remember my post about CSS tables and why it sucks. I recently marked bug 26617 as INVALID and asked Ian Hickson why the specification is such a mess:
Why doesn't CSS2.1 uses 'min-height'? Currently 'height' should behave like 'min-height' on tables. Is this done for compatibility with HTML? Since from a CSS point of view, it doesn't make sense.
He replied today:
from before my time, but yes, CSS table model is vague for compatibility with the legacy table model.
I could have known that was the reason, 'cause CSS2 was finished in the 20th century (also known as "the table age"). Still, it is very annoying, especially since CSS3 refers to the CSS2.1 draft as the most recent and there are no known plans for updating it.
Somewhat offtopic: get an RSS feed!
Ever heard from the
LINK element? Probably not.. I think I should drop my idea using that element for the entire navigation and stop using the
UL element for that.
While we're on this subject, could you tell blo.gs that you update [http://blo.gs/ping.php]? I'm using it to manage my blog lists, and your site is one of three that isn't in the blo.gs directory.

Eh... yes it is.
I use blo.gs too, and this site is in my favorites list.
Actually, I have heard of that element (I use it on my own weblog), and while it may be dumb not to look there, it'd be nice to have a visual link to the feeds.
The problem of presenting other versions by using the LINK element is that Internet Explorer doesn't support the standards in this matter.
And in Mozilla you have to enable it by hand...
