Using Opera, the orange sidebars are vertically centered instead of
sticking to the top:

Apart from that, two minor peanuts I'm unsure about:

- Since the paragraph at the top is justified while the text below is
  left-aligned, I'd say there should be a little more visual distinction
  between the paragraphs, maybe by using different fonts or font sizes,
  some background, or whatever.  As it is now, the different
  justification seems a bit strange to me, as if it wasn't intended.

- Also, I'm still not convinced the gray bar should go above the orange
  side bars on the right side.  But I'm really bad at design questions,
  so if everyone else likes it ... ;-)
