>>I believe I know exactly what has happend. You have hidden text on your page that matches the background color. I believe most of the search engines look for this now and penalize heavily for it. The workaround is to put a background image(white in your case) and change the background color to gray or something.

>Hidden text? As far as I can tell, and believe me, I've looked very closely, I haven't got any text on my page that's the same color as the background. If you're seeing something I'm not, could you point it out to me?

It looks like you have changed the page since the last time I checked (I seem to remember the menu bar on the left) and now there is no hidden text. If you haven't already done so I would submit the page to Infoseek and see what happens.
