The content pane is set to a max width of 1020px and is fluid at smaller
widths. You're suggesting it should be wider right? Could you attach a
screen shot for both problems?

I can make these a little smaller.

I haven't actually styled the tables yet. The tables will overflow
horizontally on the live wiki now. You're only noticing this happen

I missed that message from Fredric, but thanks that's just what I was
I'm contemplating removing the borders from the main content area. I've

Any input on this direction would be great.
