Nonliteral: The Remix
April 18, 2004
Well, it’s time to take the wraps off the new layout here—I’m sure everyone will agree that it’s quite a change from the previous one.
It’s been over a year since I started this site, with the old layout, and it was time for a change. In addition to just a change of look to something hopefully a little less cluttered and crufty, I wanted to accomplish a few things with this new layout.
First, it’s as close to a “pure CSS” layout as I’m likely to get—there are no tables on the site, other than those inserted by Google Adwords.
Second, I wanted to improve the site’s cross-browser look and feel. There are still a few things I’m shaking out (and will be for some time, probably), but hopefully this site renders more or less consistently among all of the v5 and up browsers, and is at least usable on PIE and Netfront (it looks pretty good on Netfront in 640 x 480 landscape, in fact).
Third, I wanted to adhere as much as possible to strict XHTML and CSS validation.
I think we’re at a good ‘first cut’—I’d welcome any feedback on issues, etc.
A few notes—if you’re looking for the most recent articles and comments, they’ve been moved to the Archive page—select “Archive” from the menu above. The blogroll has been expanded and updated, and moved to a separate links page (select “links” from the right).
Things will probably be a little shaky over the next few days as I fine tune a few remaining issues. Please excuse the dust, and let me know what you think!
