Does anyone know why TOCs in the wiki display shifted to the right?

The Confluence manual describes how we can create our own custom themes 
and apply our own CSS 
But before we put in too much work on our current version of Confluence 
(2.5 I believe), we should look into what it would take to upgrade to 
the latest release.  There's a lot of new flexibility and features that 
could be of use to us, particularly with navigation.

By the way, I have often picked whatever heading size looked right on 
the page, just as Daphne did, without worrying about skipping 
intermediate levels.  This usually doesn't cause problems.  The solution 
to the current problem might be a smarter {toc} macro.
