The navbar font is fine.  I would change to include 

        #mainContent { font-size: 100%; }

I seem to recall something like that, yes, with other page I worked
on.  I'll take a look and see what I can do.

If and when.  Likely the situation will be different.  There's always

Understood, and the page is definitely better because of your work.  

I brought it up because you're working on the page and I can't think of
where else to discuss it.  I hardly think we need a mailing list for
NetBSD asthetics or public image.  Perhaps someone here knows the

That certainly understandable.  

FWIW, the letterspacing of The NetBSD Project logo is a little wider
than usual.  Look at the distance between the B and S in NetBSD in the
logo, for instance, compared with NetBSD elsewhere on the page.  (I
imagine it's intentional.  I don't know if it's important.)  I got a
similar result in groff using kerning.  AFAIK it can't be done in CSS.
