I think those would be GREAT changes, I hope we can get these done.

I would like to add one more MAJOR usability change and that is CSS for 
printing. In FF do a Print Preview and you will see what I mean. The 
left hand Nav stuff is turned off as it should be, but the content is 
not repositioned to the left margin for printing. This should just be 
some CSS changes.
