I was going to mention that about disabling the stylesheet... :-)
The look is visually pleasing, clean, easy to read, but I don't think 
the commands should be red, or in a sans typeface.  Shouldn't the font 
for the commands look as similar to a classic console face as possible?  
Courier, etc?

Might the use of tables help keep the links in proper position no matter 
what browser or stylesheet being used?  Just a thought...
