[Samba] Simple fix to horrible bug in Samba website CSS

Dear Folks,

For a long time I have been unable to read the menu at the left of
http://samba.org/ in my 1920x1440 display.  All the menu items
overwrite each other in a horrible, illegible jumble.  I thought it
might be a bug in firefox or something.

Then I investigated, and found that there is actually a serious bug in
the cascading style sheet for the web site.  The problem is in
/samba/style/main.css.  The simple patch makes the menu suddenly
amazingly readable:

$ diff -U5 main.css-orig main.css
--- main.css-orig       2005-06-08 19:19:21.000000000 +1000
+++ main.css    2005-06-08 19:18:55.000000000 +1000
@@ -159,11 +159,11 @@
 .nav a,
 .nav a:link,
 .nav a:visited {
-       height:20px;
+       #height:20px;
 .nav a:hover {

Please note that this is not just cosmetic.  For the first time, I
could read the link that allows me to subscribe to the Samba list so
that I can tell you about the problem.

I do not know who is maintaining the CSS, but please could they be
contacted and told about it?
