They specify all their dimensions in pixels. This is very rigid - when 
the font size increases, their containers and stay the same size.

To make it even worse, it fails W3C validation with 206 errors - its a 
mess of HTML 4.01 Transitional with XHTML tag closings and [[CDATA 
sections. Their CSS is similarly a sea of errors.

No browser can overcome bad design.
