I just noticed that when browsing the forum using Konqueror, I do not see the phpBB main menu. I do see the Rebel Legion site menu, and the admin menu, which for me includes Costume related stuff, the Admin Panel link, the Log Out link, as well as the links to Old Rebel Legion Forum and Old Rebel Legion Site.

It's likely that this also affects Apple's Safari browser, since Safari is based on the Konqueror KHTML engine. Konqueror is generally stricter in regards to standards than Firefox and other browsers and doesn't correct for errors as well.
Firefox and Opera do show the missing menu.

Some notes as to why this may be occurring:

1) The Rebel Legion main menu DIV, Site logo DIV, and the first TABLE and TR tags, are contained within the HEAD element, instead of the body element where they belong.
2) There is no TD element before opening the second TABLE tag, which is the table that contains the missing menu.
3) There is no closing TABLE element for the aforementioned table.
4) The TR element opened in the page's HEAD element is not closed before opening a second TR element within the main table.
5) A TD element is not opened before the TABLE tag of the third table (which contains admin menu that is visible).
6) There is no TR element in the third TABLE (the one that contains the admin menu that is visible). There is a closing one, however.

The source still shows up this way when viewed in Firefox or Opera, however, both of those browsers are capable of correcting for the error. The most likely source of the problem is that there are errors in the phpBB2 template files that cause the table tags to be written incorrectly in this section of the page.

It's not high priority since KHTML-based browsers (Konqueror and Safari) are not near as popular as Firefox and other Gecko-based browsers, but obviously it should be corrected before the site goes live.
