Cool.  I've uploaded a slightly tidier version of Ryan's patch to 
http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1436 ... all it does is change 
.description to div#headerimg div.description, and remove a duplicate 
.description block.


Point taken about doing extra work to support such a small proportion of 
the user base, though...
