*sigh*; put this under senility...  I have a sophisticated setup of
three workspaces x four screen, with a vnc viewer using the same
configuration, and I was using the wrong meta keys so I resized the
vnc viewer window instead of the browser window...

But there are still problems with resizing down to the point where it
switches a display mode:

* The "noise" background image is still at the previous place which is
  now completely bogus.

* The "<" ">" arrows look very bad when shown vertically (would be
  really nice if they can switch to vertical arrows instead...)

* The book images are huge compared to the text.

* The RoR book is smaller than the others -- it's actually at a level
  that it can stay next to the text, so I think that the others should
  be at the same size.

Screenshots that demonstrate the first two and the second two:
