Just about every readability test I've ever seen says plain, serif  
fonts are easiest to read. Perhaps Times New Roman plain in a larger  
character weight rather than Times New Roman italic or bold italic?

And the page renders fine for me in Firefox 3.6.13 and Chrome  
8.0.552.231 on MacOS X 10.5.8. The background doesn't work properly on  
my Android 2.1 HTC Hero's browser, but that seems to be the browser,  
not your site. No page I go to with fixed elements and scrolling  
elements like the way your site's set up work on it.
