good point, this has been of great importance to the success of  sites we have 
built for our clients. I would encourage this for the benefit of all those 
googlers out there ... I guess If someone could do the grunt work of 
cataloging the broken URLs it would be easy enough to create redirection 
mappings for apache using mod_speling, mod_rewrite and the like .

It appears a tad small on linux firefox (to my eyes) compared to the same page 
in konqueror but thats easily fixed at the user end if they dont like the 
standard fonts (view>text size>increase). Looks just fine in MacOSX firefox 
(almost identical to Safari rendering)
