As Marko Mäkelä once put it so eloquently:

IE6: works, but for some reason links change font and size when I roll 
over them - rather disorienting.  (I have my font size set to
"smaller", which might be a contributing factor.)

Netscape 2.02, 3.04: Not as pretty, but still quite functional.
File timestamps don't line up (not surprising).

Netscape 4.08, 4.76: Can see the new style if I turn on Javascript AND
style sheets.  Without JS, degrades to 2.02/3.04 look.  Most things
look OK, but check out /pub/cbm/maps for a strange stairstep effect
with the timestamps - I think it happens anytime there is a file
without a description.

I really like the new interface.  Thanks for taking the time to
develop it!
