The Writings of Daniil Kharms
It's quite simple - a nicely-formatted archive of the great absurd poetry of Daniil Kharms.

Had some minor navigation hiccups. In FF 3.6 the bottom couple poem titles are partially obscured by a brown blob which I assume is some kind of spacer.

In IE 8 the titles are laid out horizontally and appear in an invisible brown color.

Yes I get navigation hiccups too. FF 3.6.13/Mac the poem titles line up underneath to the left and have the brown blobs grobstein mentioned.

Some kind of arrows to flick through the poems would be handy too.

I do like the poem in a block in the middle of the page generally though.

Problems seem to crop up online in FF < 4 - I'll check it out. IE is not going to be supported (can't mix web design for fun, and the pain of developing for IE).

I love this great Russian poet! Can you explain about the translation: "All text by Daniil Kharms originally, and continued: " The Blue Notebook, Dmitri Smirnov © translation. What does this mean? If it Smirnov translation, it is not very good, when it wrote the poet in English... I think that to translate Daniil Kharms' poetry have been extremely difficult, if not impossible.
