Congratulations on the release!

Thank you for all the hard work and great to see it come
out in this timely manner. :-)

I can reproduce this with Chrome, but not Firefox.

Equally surprising to me is that the number of slashes
also seems to affect the CSS presentation of the website
in Chrome.

// seems to give the Summer theme,
whereas / gives the Winter one!

Kind of weird.  Anyway I agree it would be better to avoid
the superfluous slashes if possible.

I am going build HP 2012.2 for Fedora 18 soon but
the first proper build may be after ghc-7.4.2 is released.
