Very nice design, John.  I have one technical suggestion to make though
-- it is too wide. 
It would be ok if it was necessary, but it isn't, really.  The image at
the top (banner2.jpg) is 600 pixels wide, and the Navigation bar at the
right is 120 pixels wide, so it seems to me that you should be able to
get down to ~720 pixels before the horizontal scroll bar pops up and you
begin to lose compression.
I downloaded your stylesheet (css.css) and I think the problem is right
here:
div.nicetitle {
    position: absolute;
    padding: 4px;
    top: 0px;
    left: 0px;
    color: white;
    font-size: 13px;
    font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    width: 25em; <-- I THINK THIS IS THE PROBLEM
    font-weight: bold;
    background-color: #666;
   
    /* IE proprietary */
    filter:alpha(opacityu);
   
    /* Mozilla proprietary */
    -moz-opacity:0.75;
    -moz-border-radius: 12px;
   z-index:2;
}
I'm not sure what 25 ems of a bolded 13 px font is in pixels, but I'm
thinking it's over 250.  If it was me I'd be thinking about cutting that
baby down to, say 15 ems and see what happened.  Actually, because there
is no text inside the div, (the purpose of defining things in ems is so
that if the user has changed the default font size in his browser, your
design will scale with it) I'd change the width specification to pixels,
like maybe 120px...
Nice writing and very classy design.

Once I am satisfied I have all (well most) of the bugs out, I plan to take 
advantage of the blog feature and started uploading my various tests, 
experiments, trials and tribulations from my notebooks.  Just check back.
