So it is. My visual memory had it more orange(gy). I suspect the real 
reason that appears so curry flavoured (to me) may be something to do 
with rendering it on my 1920x1600 monitor. The original seems to have a 
fixed *border* width and the new one a fixed central, info panel, width.

This means that the orange of the borders is considerably more 
intrusive, 'cos the combined width of the borders is wider than the bit 
in the middle. I suspect going to fixed width borders or making the 
centre panel say 85% wide would go a long way to ease my concern.

Good effort though...
