Have a look at the new template (beta version!)

Over here.

Some of the customized pages won't look nice yet, e.g. the News Aggregator.

Make me sad and tell me it doesn't work under IE/Opera/Safari. Go on.

Looks like it works in Firefox and Konquerer. Great job.

It looks really good in Firefox. But IE ain't so hot... it loses the blog roll and recent posts as well as not being as snappy as in Firefox.

IE was also worst on Mac. Opera and Safari had trouble with incorrectly nested ul and li's around the categories. I wonder if it may be related? Might be useful to run it through a validator to check for errors?

I'm just fixing the sidepanel borders - the dodgy way I did it doesn't look ok when the main page content is short (see for yourself - go to the about page).

Cursed Internet Explorer. Now I've got a big problem to fix.

Ok in Firefox 1.0.7 on a 15.4 widescreen, although some compression of left sidebar entries is occurring. Clean, clear layout in general. Congrats!

Yeah, in IE the main column words are overwriting the right side bar. In addition, the words written in the main column don't seem to be wrapping correctly. That is, they just keep on going out to the right effectively making the page wider (until it meets a line break). Not really workable for IE unfortunately.

fm - it's caused by an infamous IE bug. Essentially instead of adding margins onto the width of an element, IE subtracts them. Breaks the CSS standards. There is a fix for it.

"There is a fix for it."

Apart from using Firefox?
