I posted a test page (Test/MacIE52ScreenShots) showing how this, and 
just about every other skin (no time to test other skins right now) get 
broken by Internet Explorer (5.2) for Mac.

There are some common problems that occur with every example.   (Right 
header elements get knocked over to the left on the next line, screen 
width gets extended, rframe image becomes full frame).

Perhaps someone can come up with suggested solutions that others can use 
to get rid of some of the worst, or at least most common, problems.
