   beginning of PartialEclipse.css it will position the text better in the window.

   If you want to make things even cleaner, dispense with the icons for each
   Channel as shown in the screen shot - especially on a small screen - by going
   into PROPERTIES for that channel (right click on it) and resize a  small image
   with graphics software if you have any like FastStone Viewer or Screen Capture
   to 1 x 1 pixel which should make it invisible. That does not work on some
   channels, so edit a small or tiny square in the same colour as the background.
   Either way, save to a convenient place and reference that instead of the default
   for that channel. If you just clear out the existing link, some channels will
   just regenerate it.
