What would you like to do?
A custom vector.css for Wikipedia. Living document-style, this will be updated as I find other minor tweaks. See http://simianstudios.com/blog/post/a-quick-and-easy-way-to-a-cleaner-more-readable-wikipedia for more info!

Update: changed default font to Open Sans (rather than Droid Sans) after a suggestion from Paul Maloney. Thanks Paul!

Minor update: Made the "From Wikipedia..." subheading a bit lighter, section edit links a bit darker on hover, and added in the cross-browser transitions I forgot about (sorry!)
