Gratuitous layout post

I'm in the mood where I find fiddling with CSS the most satisfying thing to do. I'm also a big fan of _sommeil's designs, so I have been working on an adaptation of her Sail layout from her community spiralbound_lj. It had to be adapted because she wrote it for Generator, with an image map for the navigation, and my layout is div-based and needs pure CSS navigation.

You can see what I did if you have a browser that allows alternate stylesheets, and you choose the "Sail" stylesheet. The faked image map I was so proud of doesn't work in Opera or at high resolution, but I think the main content of the journal is readable. If anyone has any suggestions to fix that I'd love to hear them! (Old versions of Opera won't display my journal properly at all, but that's not my fault.)

Other than that, well, it's a nice clean design that doesn't over-rely on graphics. I have a feeling the pale blue colour of the links may be just too light to read, which is a pain. What do people think? Any bugs or aesthetic issues I haven't thought of? You're welcome to take a look at the stylesheet if you're interested.

If it seems generally popular I shall undertake the mammoth task of making it not break in IE so that I can use it as default.
