I spotted a few and I've just uploaded a new file.

OK. Say defaulting to the last 3 or 4 years.

Try that again, it's the same in Konqueror. However, there is a reason for any 
change. Linus uses fixed font sizes using font tags. These are deprecated by 
W3C and fixed font sizes cause problems for disabled / poor sighted visitors 
who then scale the text size manually. The strict format uses proportional 
font sizes - relative to the preferred font size in the browser preferences. 
Mozilla might be setting the default a little small.

I'm sure I can solve that. Just need Linus' comments on the refreshed page.
