Ok, but given that your "level 2" pages are also mainly text with a menu 
next to it, that the "too bloggish" refered to my first page? Hmmm, not 
sure what to do with that :-)

Ok, sounds good. The same is my main reason for leaving the right/bottom 
clear on mine, so screen can be filled (although given that I usually run 
1600x1200, there might be a useable max-width :-)

But wouldn't that move your menu out of view?

You might get away with stretching the background image vertically, but 
then not all boxes would have the same gradient. All depends on the 
gradient range I guess.
