On my friend's site, http://mal.coffeegeek.net, the browser is forcing the site
to load with a white background.  However, the source code holds that the
background should be black, and indeed does show up as black in other browsers.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to http://mal.coffeegeek.net.  Site should have black background.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
The page loaded with a white background, which makes the page bothersome to view.

Expected Results:  
Page should have loaded with a black background.

Other sites with dark backgrounds have also loaded with white background.  On
some, it helps, on others, it is a bother.

The css file is invalid:
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://mal.coffeegeek.net/ thus
mozilla doesn't apply the style rules for body.

It can be fixed by removing:
<STYLE TYPE="type/css">  <!-- and --> from main.css
