Minor Tweak to Site Design

As I continue to get more familiar with CSS and XHTML, I'm planning on using this site as a testing grounds for layouts, etc. so don't be surprised if it changes (but also don't be surprised if it doesn't change...)

Let me know what you think of the design. Blogger doesn't give you huge amounts of customization and once I move to a hosted service, I'll likely use Moveable Type, but for now...this was relatively painless and FREE.

I tried to make my changes without a little help from my friends (could you imagine if the Beatles would have called their song that?), but at 1:00am I stopped being effective. Kevin at graphicPUSH helped me find a little div that was hanging out in the middle of my code.

I feel better because it finally feels a little more like my own site...my banner, my background, my color scheme. I also would be remiss if I didn't thank Douglas Bowman at Stopdesign for the initial template.

Let me know what you think of it....

The new look is cool, except that the right hand column with the links drops all the way to the bottom.

Fixed.

IE is stupid.Thanks for pointing that one out. There's also some weird padding up at the top that I guess is built in for IE because IE as a browser is dumb.I don't know if you remember, but I posted something on this before.

You can find it here.
