Me gusta! I'm sure it would be possible to make all the links show up in

Needless to say, I think your new skin is nice and neat. I spotted some
layout problems which you may or may not be already aware of:
(1) the content pane is now laid out in fixed width, and takes up
half of my screen.
(2) the "page" tab is misaligned (too mich to the left).
(3) I think the font for the links on the left is a little bit too big.
(4) Tables are missing vertical and horizontal lines. Only happens on
Chromium, works fine on Firefox. See:
(5) Tables also overflow horizontally (although it might be
caused by (1)).
(6) there's too much empty space above and below the Sugar Labs logo.
It might be caused by the other layout problems.
Note that I have a very high DPI display and therefore I configure my
browsers with bigger than normal fonts. Most sites survive this, but a

These two changes can be done independently, but I agree with you.
