The biggest flaw I've noticed is that the site's stylesheet displays
'visited' links the same color as 'unvisited' links, presumably to make the
page look more professional to the PHBs.  Unfortunately, this makes the site
much less usable; see Jakob Nielsen's column at
<http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20040503.html> for an explanation.
