Apart from stuff for work, tonight I made some decent steps towards getting myBLOG redesigned in CSS.Process:

  1. wget the HTML my BLOG generates for the front page
  2. Hack on that saved copy, frequently reloading in mozilla
  3. wget again when you see you've been heading in the wrong direction. Repeat ad nauseum
  4. Get 'close' to something presentable
  5. Fine tune it

I have a nice mockup for you to look at.Note: It'll probably be ugly if your resolution is low, or if your browserdoesn't do CSS very well (or at all). Also, as I'm still learning CSS, I mightbe doing some things wrong. In any case, there's a lot I can do to improveit, but it's not a start that I'm ashamed of. You'll notice that the entriesare still tables, as I haven't converted them yet. Neat stuff:The search will link to google, with a restriction to search my blog.The Topics will be all the topics defined in the database, naturally takingyou to the appropriate topic page when clicked. The 'Huh' will explain whataccounts are.

Ahh, a brief thought for you... A challenge..Relate the role of the end of noble/royal rule, the changing characteristicsof warfare, and social experimentation in the context of Europe in the last300 years.
