Arrival

Comments

Well, I think by now you’ve probably noticed that a new site design’s in effect. For fans of the grand experiment in purple, I hope you’re not disappointed. There’s still plenty of pink, purple, green — I love them too much not to use them (Tara, I kept the beach, just for you!).

Still, long-time readers will know that I’m never quite satisfied, so there are sure to be tweaks and changes over the next few weeks. Hopefully, the bulk of the work is done, though!

Some notes, before I get back to nummy things like bath products and tea*:

  1. I love CSS & the idea of CSS, but wow, does it have limitations when it comes to layout! I finally had to cheat a bit and surround everything with ten DIV’s to position my background graphic elements. Even then, I had to make a lot of images with invisible padding if I wanted to position them relative to the right side of the page.
  2. Internet Explorer is horrible!!! Could it be any worse at dealing with CSS?
  3. I would say: don’t be afraid of using tables, honestly! That is, unless you are a raving loon and think you might want to someday enable drop-in stylesheets. No matter what anyone tells you, there are definitely things you can do with tables which aren’t possible in CSS. I almost gave up so many times, but clearly I am a madwoman and need to be committed…

Also I finally have room to put my flickr photostream on my blog! So please enjoy, and everyone send warm fuzzies (or subscription money) to the lovely folks who make it possible.

Now I’m going to go brew myself some honey rooibos. See? Feels like home already!
