This is not work in progress. I might add some additional links though. Feel free to flame, but I try to keep it nice.
Anne, is it just me or your blog starts to look like Hixie's? I guess it's Opera thing :) Programmers (like myself) love lots of white space, maybe because they are used to text editors.
I still miss the
CSS Sucks! guy.
I see that you've got the whole narrow thing going again. At least it's elastic.
Much better already (asuming colour will follow)...!
Just because I had to find something: you should really specify a background-color every time you set a foreground color, because if someone has a blue background they won't see your links. I am aware that's all theoretical, but I for one do not use white as a background color.
You just had to get a working design without DIV again, didn't you? :-P
Sébastien, I think I have mostly fixed those issues now, although the validator still complains for a bit.
It made a smile on my face. I love it. This layout is really you ;) Nice job!
Whatever you do, your site is still moosified, and looks identical as ever to me :)
As Daniel Morrison already mentioned I am also missing the 'css sucks' guy. This is your 4th layout change I am seeing and I must say the 'css sucks' guy was the best.
This is clear (and easy to read), but in a designers perspective is sucks ;)
Ah, lovely design. Breathing space, elastic, minimalistic. I'd change one thing though: the date and ‘Browse through posts’ lines are kind of out of balance, right now. Fully right aligned would be better.
Very usable, simplistic and lightweight. Good. But why don't you show your css skills on your personal weblog?
Nice code :).
Simple, clean, lovely!
only the text in between 'code' tags looks weird in Firefox 1.0.4 / Linux
I think the comments should have more space between them, or a divider. At the moment it's unclear who is the author of a comment. Certainly with that down arrow.
I find it ironic that someone who works for Opera does not test their layout in that browser. Or they would see the top line is left justified and not full width or centred. Nice change of layout though - I like it.
To be honest, I think this is the worst design you have put up. Okey, it looks good, but it's not very easy on the eyes. It's too narrow and there's too much contrast (black on white).
What makes you think I did not test in Opera? I did tested in Opera, found a bug in its implementation (actually, I already knew Opera had a bug with this, my previous design suffered from it as well) and considered it not to be very harmful as the site remains usable.
BestSeller, that is why browsers allow user style sheets.
This is awesome, Anne. Like, OMGWTFROFL can c0d3 be any cl34n3r??!11
By the way, where has HREF gone? No more bookmarks on the main page or what?
It's centered, and the comment textarea is wider than the content. Text is a bit small too.
Looks pretty good though.
I think the previous design was better. Really. At least it had some typographic adjustments...
I'm just curious why you don't leave your old stylesheets as alternative styles, so those who prefered the other layouts can choose. Although I guess they might need updating if you have changed the markup of your site as well, I still think it would be a nice touch.
Anyway, the new style isn't really my… style, but I guess it's clean in a certain way. Personally I wouldn't have centered p.meta, to me it looks like a break from the rest of the style, looking a bit "shaken" where the rest feels "fixed". or something like that, I'm afraid I'm not very good at expressing my views on visual styles.
Out of curiousity, why do you omit the system id on the doctype even though doing so activates the quirks mode in Mac IE 5 and the HTML 4.01 spec says “must” when it lists three doctypes with the system id (although that “must” itself is questionable)?
This is the shortest
DOCTYPE that still allows me to validate. Well, it could be one byte shorter, but I like to validate against HTML 4.01 and not 4.0. You can tell how happy I am with the new one from HTML 5.
Would it be a good idea to move around name, time and permalink on comments so that those of fixed (well, more or less) width (time and the word "Permalink") are to the right? As it is now, the name pushes everything to a different position.
I don't think I need to tell you I abhor your code minimalism, even while I appreciate your design minimalism. I think this design is pretty good, and really you.
It's ugly. There's a difference between simple and plain.
