It looks fine to me in Mozilla and Firebird, as well as IE.  The looks
of such a project should be second to the functionality, which m0n0wall
seems to have plenty of.  I'm sure IE was not chosen as the primary
browser because it's the most insecure, but because it's the most widely
used among the intended audience.

Just my .02

i thought m0n0wall was a really cool project, but now i'm starting to
have some doubts.. Galeon, Konqueror, Epiphany-browser, Mozilla-firebird
? Linux-starters, FreeBSD-starters ? (how can you choose the most
insecure browser of the Internet as your main target ?) is Tahoma is a
freely available font known to all these people ? (i never heard of it)
perhaps you should consider making a Tahoma-disclaimer in m0n0wall then,
as i think i'm not the only person *not* using Internet Explorer
