Default Plans & rubber bands

This needs a page check, please!

I just added a new box to the side bar on my Travel Blog, and took the occasion to make some slight styling changes for the side bar. For instance, all subheadings (h4) now have the same slightly darker background color, including in the itinerary list. I think that makes it more scannable - but you may not agree!

The new box is titled "plans & rubber bands" and pulls in a list from my "places to go to" on 43 Places (a fun site!) - those are the plans - and I added a link to a list I created on the related Lists of Bests site: a list of "rubber band cities" - those are the rubber bands. Linking here to the main pages, but follow the links in the side bar and you'll see what it's all about.

It took some doing to style the 43places list that to fit in with the rest, since it's generated with JavaScript, and has a div referred to as a "head" which is not actually a heading but logically in my structure the same as a h4 subheading. Pity the rubber bands list isn't equally dynamic, but they don't have such a feature - it would have been more fun to include the actual list.

I would appreciate some critical eyes on the side bar - especially with Mac browsers - and would like to hear if there's anything amiss. Make sure you click on one of the maps (or follow this link so you can actually see an itinerary in its new layout.

Suggestions are welcome, of course.
