 Very elegant. Could you restyle the whole of www.r-project.org now
please? And without using FRAMEs? :)

 One comment - all the code areas have visible horizontal scroll bars,
even when not needed. Perhaps change the CSS from :

overflow-x: scroll


overflow-x: auto;

 so the bars only appear when needed. Maybe its different on your
browser, but I see dead scroll bars (firefox and chrome)
