I tested the forum page containing Dave's message 
(http://go-mono.com/forums/#nabble-td3096414%7Ca3096611) in Safari 5.0.3 
(6533.19.4), Google Chrome 8.0.552.231, Firefox 3.6.12 and Opera 11.0 build 1156 
all on my Mac running OS X 10.6.5.  I wanted to see if the "mono" link is hot in 
any of them and what the cause might be. The "mono" link was hot only in Opera. 
The link was inaccessible in Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

After looking at the HTML source for that page I was able to see that the real 
problem is slightly different. (The "mono" link actually is hot as you can see 
in the code snippet below.) The real problem is that the "mono" link is 
inaccessible because it is being eclipsed by the div that contains the word 
"Forums" shown just above the "mono" link.  The solution that works on all 4 
browsers I tested is quite simple. In the code snippet below on line 2 
change <div id="content-header"> to <div id="content-header" 
style="z-index:-1">. Adding the style="z-index:-1" attribute will make sure all 
browsers render that div behind the "mono" link thus making the "mono" link 
always accessible.

Now that I've diagnosed the bug and provided a solution how can I get the 
solution incorporated into the forums code?

<div id="page">
    <div id="content-header"><h2><!--BEGIN PAGE TITLE-->Forums<!--END PAGE 

    <div id="wrapper" class="wide">

    <div id="sidebar">
    <div id="toc-parent"></div>
    <!-- END SIDE CONTENT -->
    <div id="content" class="wide">


    <!-- END MAIN CONTENT -->
