I don't know what I did, but something changed. I started playing with line-height and height, and nothing seemed to do anything. Then I changed the font size up to 275% and it looks great in Windows Firefox and pretty good in Opera (although I had some problems with it stumbling over the indentation on the first line, but I fixed that).

Windows IE 6.x never did get it quite right, and I found that it seems to ignore my body width anyway, and specifying the width using em's as I did really was a pain if IE won't use the body width correctly. Tried it under IE7 and got the same thing, so I'm surprised this wasn't fixed in 7. That's a whole 'nother story. I may have to try a container div.

Switching over to Linux, Firefox didn't do very well at all. I think that this might be because I don't have garamond or jgaramond on that machine. But strangely Konqueror did just fine! So that makes me wonder if there's something different in the way the Linux and Windows versions of Firefox work.

OK...been working on this. Looks halfway decent on most browsers now. Ended up using a container div to get the width right. Main problem in IE 6 and 7 is how they seem to handle the letter spacing (note the NG in the "BREWING." header and the LT in "MALT." which are supposed to be spread out...I'd stopped the span before the last letter to bring things close on the period).

The new versions can be found at http://overanalysis.org/junk/brewing2.html and http://overanalysis.org/junk/brewingpage2.css
