Thanks to him (the work he put in the layout) and is disgrace of minimalistic layouts I present you this. It is readable in the latest version of Internet Explorer thanks to not turning the thing into quirks mode, which is something I normally do. The images "suck" in that browser, but that issue could be solved if I would want that.
Note that the markup didn't really change, this was originally intended to be a alternate style for the site, but I liked it too much for that. All the cool effects work properly in Mozilla (not the FireFox build from 6 months ago though), Opera supports some, but not all. And I don't know about Safari, nor do I care (they should probably fix their bugs if there are issues).
The previous version can be found here: click!
If you don't like it, take a browser that supports setting style sheets off, or browse with Lynx, whatever you like ;-)
Nice work. Maybe decrease the font size, but I like the overall design. :)
Wow, talk about a drastic make-over. This is more like a sex change than just some make-up.
I like it a lot. One thing that bothers me, though, is that the block on the left (with the daddy image on it) overlaps part of the text, rendering some links unusable.
Purple, eh? Anne, how could you???? :]
You need to add block display to generated content on heading hovers, because the page jumps all over currently. That said, I am glad you didn't buy into the hype of linking headings. That was
one abortion of a concept that had nothing to do with geometry or theology, as Ignatius O'Reilly might have grumbled.
What is this thingamajig to the right of the input? it looks as if a fly had shat. Is that a special Mozilla-only effect, or something? :]
And who is dat web-standardz evangelist who uses "click" for link text? :) Anne, Anne, Anne, tsk, tsk!
Great, you implemented the new design. Cool work man! I'd like to know, though, which Arthur are you talking about? Steiner or Lugtigheid?
What is wrong with making a link from a header? In my opinion the name of the post is a better placeholder than the word 'permalink', the date or a symbol like #.
So come on Arthur, step forward and take a bow. Very nice, indeed. I love it.
I don't see any change. Lets try CTRL+F5, clear cache, and all that. :)
In answer to your question, Jeroen:
I don't know until I hover if a header link points to the permalink or the primary link that is the subject of the entry (see Evan Williams's blog, for example). Isolated permalinks are less ambiguous. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, probably.
Nice redesign! Makes your page look kinda special, not like the standard you can see everywhere else! Nice! But the "A HEADER SHOULD NOT BE A LINK, STUPID" part is.. a bit annoying ;)
IE is still bugging with the layout, but it looks really nice. It's not a regular layout and I think that's really special in these days.
Great work Arthur & Anne.
Congratulations with the new layout!
I was surprised.
Maybe you can use a capital letter about 'accessify.com' in the list of weblogs
It looks great! I think the font-size is oke, but thats because I'am running at 1280x1024 ;).
Wow, very very nice design. I really like it.
This template must be called And Now For Something Completly Different, heh-heh!
Nice! Van harte gefelicislagroomteert!
Looks nice! Good job Anne and Arthur.
Ow. Um, is it just a problem with my monitor, or does that rgb(70,1,106) REALLY clash with that rgb(192,192,72)? I like the body a lot better as, say, rgb(72,192,72) (though that does cause other problems with the code, blockquote, etc. elements and the highlighting, but those could be changed too.)
Other than that, though, it's okay... but still, any chance of adding the old stylesheet back as an alternate?
Ah, this is wonderful, Anne. The text size is just perfect. I don't have to upsize anything, which I most usually have to, due to my relatively high resolution. Very, very nice work indeed.
Get rid of the "A header should not be a link" part and I might be able to enjoy the layout.
Rock on, Anne. Lookin' hot there! :)
