Thanks, I'm glad you are liking it. I think we've all done a really great job with it!

I actually spent some time ensuring that it looked acceptable in that case. We made the declarations be nowrap, and as such, they can force a float to the next line. If we put the floated source link first, then the opposite will happen with long lines: The declaration will get pushed down below the line. I took the current solution to be the lesser of two evils. I think the source link at the right edge, under the declarations looks reasonable.

This and the source link issue on IE 7 is quite annoying! Alas I only have access to IE 8 here and neither of these issues appears. Analytics of my open source project's web site (www.contextfreeart.org) that gets ~200 visitors a day shows that IE is only 12% of browsers (!) and IE 7 only 22% of that. Which is to say - I think we should try to fix the contents module issue (since it affects usability), but perhaps the source links are an "oh well"...
