After trying this out, I agree, and I've switched to a black top bar.
I've also added more space, as Laurent suggested, and fixed the
cropping in the popup, as Stephen pointed out.  I've revised the
tag-line formatting, and darkened a few things, and taken some more of
your suggestions that I've forgotten now.

For the text of particular parts of the page, I'm open to basically
all edits, but I'd really prefer to have suggested replacement text.

Thanks for the very detailed feedback.
