you might notice the nifty new dashed lines separating the blog entries. i've wanted a good post separator for a long time but didn't know enough css to do it. now it's done. if the only thing you ever look at on this site is the blog, i encourage you to look around, because that is only the subtlest change of an all-around makeover. virtually the entire site has been updated to use css.

for example, this blog uses a stylesheet modified from glish. in the blog, i modified the template to add those lines & a few other custom things (like the image & links to the right, for example). just a few tweaks, really. but for the rest of the stAllio! site, i've used the glish stylesheet as a jumping board to create some similar-looking yet definitely different styles. at the very least, it no longer has that "mosaic" feel to it that the pure html formatting always had.

similarly, i really tweaked out the awia news template & applied a variation of that to the rest of the awia site. i think the awia color scheme is really improved now.

so yeah, i spent a lot of time the other day revamping the awia styles. i spent most of today revamping the awia site... then when i thought i was done, i had to go back & fix many of the st! pages to compensate for a bug in the way internet explorer implements css (they looked perfect in mozilla... luckily i had a book that mentioned the IE bug or i never would've caught it. just one more reason to use a good browser such as mozilla or firefox).

so take a look around, & let me know if you find anything awry. there are probably still a few nooks & crannies you can find through google that aren't css-ified (like the playlists from my long-defunct radio freedom show), but the only publicly linked material that hasn't been updated should be pirates of the internet (because the pirates deserve their own style, yet there are only two pages there... hardly enough to warrant restyling).

anyway, soon i might get back to actual blogging, but rest assured i haven't forgotted; i'm just trying out my new css skills...
