New site design is up and running.

Wow. I didn’t think I could pull it off, but I managed to come up with a new design for the site that:

A) I actually like.
B) Uses CSS instead of tables.
C) Actually seems to work right in the latest versions of IE and Netscape.
D) Looks halfway decent.
E) I actually like.

I’m also proud of the fact that I managed to figure out how to get my links to look different in the sidebar than they do in the main text. Now, I just have to make the archive pages and comments pages match and I’ll be all set. But first, I think I’m going to take a break as it only took the better part of the night to get what I got to work.

  1. I read your posts over at MT and I am trying to do the same thing convert to CSS from tables smile I hope to design everything from scratch sometime soon smile
    Great design

  2. Thanks Gnome-girl, I appreciate the feedback. I got to work today to discover that the site design falls apart completely in Netscape 4.7, but past experience from running two previous websites seems to indicate this probably won’t be an overwhelming problem visitor-wise. Perhaps someday I’ll get up the motivation to make it truely backwards compatable with older browsers. For now, I’m just please I was able to pull it off at all.
