Thank you all for the feedback. (Sorry, I haven't responded sooner.)
I've toyed a bit with the font spacing, but it's not quite right yet. I'll keep playing with it till I get it right. I did add more spacing to the sidebar and what-not.
(I haven't had a chance to really test the site in IE yet, I keep forgetting when I actually have a chance...)
I'm also playing with getting a lighter border for the edge and top, although I really don't mind the borders that I do have.
The other thing I have been thinking over is adding more color. I'm not convinced that it's a necessity, but it's something I want to play with. The trick is trying to figure out the best way to add color, so I'll keep toying with that as well.
EDIT: I decided to add a faint overlay of color to part of the header and footer and I think I kinda like it, we'll see if it sticks. (I didn't do the sides because the reapeating background image makes it look too much like a patern.)
