The blog looks much better now, if you’re using Firefox. I was tired of seeing the same old thing everyday. But it looks really horrible if you’re using IE.
I had a whole step-by-step process thought out—finalize new layout, change the template, and Base64 encode any images used to make sure they always work. But I’m no designer—make one change here or there and the blog looked better in one browser, worse in another.
I’ve just given up and used some Firefox specific CSS to get it looking a little good. Sorry to all those who prefer Opera or Safari—I’ll try and port the look to other browsers as well.
