Still untranslated. Not good, but nice for reproducing the problem :)

It seems the current layout somehow works around the issue as a side 
effect. The trans-note appears just below the splash, in the gap 
declared using margin-bottom of the splash.

This 'absolute' should go away. In narrow mode it causes the note to 
go right over the splash :/

How about removing the trans-note definition from debhome.css 
altogether? This way it will look the same as on other pages (e.g. 
http://www.debian.org/CD/index.uk.html). True, it would be better to 
have it below the splash on the home page, but this would require 
hacks of all sorts to do without moving the splash in the template 
(and therefore the download too, ouch).

Anyway, here's a snapshot of the homepage without the special style 
for trans-note in debhome.css for consideration: 

Disclaimer: I head in the direction of simplifying just because I have 
no slightest idea what "moving download/splash to the template" 
involves. It that is not too hard, it would be better, generally.
