Restyle Step 1


I re-did the masthead. For some reason the vertical bars between the category names disappear in Safari. The rest of the page will get changes in the near future.

All of these changes were done in the CSS file, which is cool and my goal for this redesign.

And the picture. I told you I used to work in a photo lab and took portraits. Well before we left that job the Mrs and I got a bunch of cool pictures taken by the photographer that knew what he was doing. One of those is the picture in the masthead. We borrowed the gun from the Pawn shop next door. We taped a match to the back of the barrel, lit it and blew it out right as we took the pictures. Getting the smoke coming out of the barrel. I also had hair back then.

Scaling the picture is making it less clear than I want. I’ll see what I can do as time goes on.

    Looks good – CSS rocks! I’d bet that the problem you’re having with the | characters is that they’re in the style sheet’s default text color which is most likely black. Try wrapping the entire thing in a span whose style has a text color of red or green.

    I suspect that because I had the same problem with my sidebar. The text for "Search This Site" was in a bad color. It turned out to be more difficult to fix because that was using the "label" tag… I don’t remember what my exact fix was, but I most likely set the body tag to have a text color of grey…

    That was it. Fixed it now and change the whole category list’s style a little.

    I like the picture.
