> * The "eBook (PDF) from Apress" link is broken.

Fixed in trunk.

Made the links in the footer a tad lighter.

It looks like the link is some sort of affiliate link
(tag=enligperlorga-21) which I didn't want to break. Should/Can this
be changed?

Unfortunately, I don't know what you mean ...

My browser (Chrome) happily scales the fonts (and everything else
accordingly) even though they are sized in pixels. Even Twitter's
bootstrap uses pixels and it's becoming somewhat of a de-facto

Best thing would be a responsive design version. Unfortunately, I
haven't found the time yet to completely overhaul the (2-3 years old)
markup. I just wanted to finally get it out there because the old site
looks horrible IMHO and was partially broken and/or outdated.

Thanks for your comments, Dave!
