I see its stats at 20% last month, down from 32% at the beginning of
the year.  Last year it dropped 11%.  The year before that, nearly a
20% drop.  I'd expect to see its continued drop.  I was just
suggesting you not bust yourself too hard if nothing can be figured

Ah, my mistake.  Personally I'm not a huge fan of the fixed
banner/sidebar when I'm scrolling a page.  It is a bit strange to me.
When I scroll, I like to see the whole page scroll.  But maybe that's
just me.

Yep, it displays nicely.  And when I double-tap on the content
section, it scales to an almost perfect size for reading, in my
opinion.  Well done!
