Sorry for the inconvenience.  Known Navigation header breakage, its being "rebuilt."
There may be other unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
The Table Of Contents section of each "PC-BSD® Users Handbook" page may be the best workaround.

From a Mac OS X machine the setup is similar to FreeBSD, however, to enable this capability other software may need to be installed. X11 is included on your OS X (10.6) install discs but is not a part of your default system. Install X11 and you should be able to start up an X server so you can display apps running on your PC-BSD/FreeBSD machine on your Mac.
