Hi all,

I'll appreciate if you could take a moment to review my blog and give some advises before I lock the CSS.

ExpressionEngine Demo
(It's an Alpha, please don't send the whole Web there)

Thanks in advance.

PS: I'm gonna do a variation in black, if you know great models please post.

Hi eSite,
Looks fine but the light gray is a little hard on the eyes.
Making it darker would be an improvement.

Hope that helps

One minor niggle, the border on linked images. Dunno what browser you're using, but in IE, it shows a blue border on linked images.

for example, making an ID lile

a img {
border : 0;
}

would work in removing borders from any images nested directly in an <a></a> Smile

Other than that, it looks clean and readable. Smile

Problem with the box on the right - text spills out.

Firefox 0.9, Win 98 - apart from that and some question makrs, it looks okay.

Yup I saw that, the text is too long with its style.
Can you do the same snap on a permalink page but with IE please ?
(keep a good jpg quality or even a PDF)

Certainly. It's even worse, it stretches the div.

Okay thanks.
Do you see the flash movie or an image ?
Any idea why UTF characters don't display right ?

No idea.

Try changing it to the ISO one, and replace them with the & characters - eg, & becomes & amp; , > becomes & gt; , etc
