I'll keep it simple: the character bar that was edited into the navigation pages is both unnecessary and intrusive. I know it's borrowed from the one I made earlier for the font pages, but that wasn't placed everywhere else possible—even where irrelevant—and didn't cover up the Creative Commons license on every page. (Speaking of that one I made, you should see how it's been affected due to overlap.) I'll grant that it's not as… assertive in IE6, but it still wipes out the Character Map link for which the float was originally devised correction, it's the other way around. I'll add, though, that viewing the navigational pages stand-alone causes the bar to overlap unto itself, which is unsightly.
I'll leave the brazenbar so that others may see it and decide for themselves, but I'm personally wanting to take it out in the near future. :)
