[sword-devel] IE6 problem Re: CrossWire website up and running

Some other platform notes:

IE7 looks the same as FF3 to me.

Chrome, Safari Mobile, & Safari (all based on WebKit) look okay, but 
aren't rendering correctly. The gray title bars ("The SWORD Project", 
"Bible Study Software", etc.) on the main page extend their color 
through the entire <div>. So there's a solid gray box with the "The 
SWORD Project" content, followed by a white divider, then a solid gray 
box with all of the "Bible Study Software" content, then another 
divider, etc. Other pages display similar faults. They are generally 
passable (except when there's red text on burgundy background on a few 
pages) but clearly not what was intended.
