When I shrink the window width on chrome, your text overlaps between the
nav bar and the body of the page. The old one could go much smaller
before it had a problem, and then it introduced scrollbars to handle it.
(See attached screenshots.)

Attempting to factor out the "header.html copied inline into each file"
thing, I noticed that you replaced the tables with a css implementation
of tables. Is there a reason for that?

What does div class="nine columns" mean? It doesn't seem to be defined
in your css, and google only finds it in examples.

I tried installing the stylesheet(s) by themsevles without the many
other changes you made to the site (thanks for catching the typo in a
href="#download_bistream" but maybe that should be a separate commit?)
and the result... wasn't pretty. So I'm reading through to see what the
changes are.

Speaking of separate commits, in _theory_ there's a git repository at
the top level of j-core.org, but "git clone http://j-core.org/" doesn't
find it. (It's there when I ssh into the thing though, and I pull and
push to it through that just fine. I tried running "git
update-server-info" at a shell prompt on the server and it didn't do
anything I can detect. Mercurial had a static-http:// that "just worked"
and I understood what it _did_, but git is being all magical again.)
