Layout and Firebug

Meaningful posts have been interrupted by layout designs for the site. I started off trying to get a train or train wreck theme. I didn't really like them, but then I had to rethink that. I decided that instead of portraying a train wreck, I wanted to portray the reporting of a train wreck. Hence, I put together a layout that is supposed to resemble an old newspaper clipping. I borrowed the tedium of CSS and crazy Blogger.com XSL~ish type stuff from a layout called "Kubrick". All the rest of the art I did myself. I made pretty good use of a cool Firefox add-in called Firebug. Check it out at http://www.getfirebug.com. It is really handy for quick style edits.

The layout seems to work well enough on Firefox 2.0 and Safari 3.0 for Mac as well as Firefox 2.0 and IE7 on PC.
