A bit of a rewrite I did this morning:
It's using the Nifty Corners hack
(http://www.html.it/articoli/nifty/index.html) as suggested by Richard.
Please check how well it works in various browsers. Looks good to me in
FF1.5 and IE6, even with various font sizes.

That was just a quick hack to see if it helped in Konquerer. I didn't
plan on keeping it. Hopefully the newest draft (3) works better.

The rounded corners look a bit odd at larger/smaller font sizes.
Hopefully my latest draft copes with all that.

Only error in the latest draft is a hack for IE so I'm happy with that.
1 error in XHTML validation due to a script to clear the town search
input box. Is it acceptable to remove the 'language' property?

Thanks! That was easy :).

I'll put some URLs into it and see what happens.
