Indeed. I just tested this by removing the CSS file and it looks fine.
I haven't done anything at all fancy. As people on IRC were requesting
that they could have a peek at it before I commit anything, I stuck it
on my FTP.


Not all pages are accessible (changelog.html etc) and I have more
renaming and a big docs overhaul to do, but it should give you a
little taste. Comments welcome but note that I prefer it fixed width
(when using CSS) to keep the line length limited to something sane
without having to mess with zoom and stuff. :)
