    Using Firefox 2:

    The ESPN looks OK to me and I've seen worse view-source.

    The CBS didn't render OK (the top part of the brackets is "under" the header) and view-source shows a mess of javascript. Sure enough, with javascript disabled, no brackets. I guess this must be for the

    Well, I didn't look at either source, nor did I submit brackets, but I've already downloaded and printed the printable versions of both ESPN and CBS brackets, and the ESPN brackets are far superior to the CBS version; clearer and less cluttered. Not sure if this addresses your question, but it's at least a side note.
