Taking Advantage of that CSS

Firefox screenshot After spending a few hours tonight hacking on them, I've just put up some new CSS for the blog. Like any good work it consists of elements lifted from here and there. The little frame elements in the top-left and bottom-right are loosely adapted from a rounded corner guide here, and the little calendars are lifted from mezzoblue (though in fairness I'm not presenting quite the same). The goal was to de-clutter and reduce the number of colors I'm using. I don't think it's perfect (or even close), but it's a start.

Now, those of you using Internet Explorer are sitting there saying "what frame elements?" and "what calendars?" That's why I gave you the little screenshot to click on and see what you're missing. There's no excuse not to be running a browser from Mozilla these days. You deserve a better browser than IE.

That said, the calendars should work in IE and I'm not sure why they don't. I need to look into that more.
