Aaargggh… I’ve been spending close to 2 hours on this new template tweaking it like crazy. For a person who does not have any clue about html, it’s a pretty arduous task. I would have thought I was doing considerably well, if not for these two irritants –
* see the ‘Pages I frequent’ list in the sidebar? It’s got no padding to the right. And I’m clueless as to how to stop the words from entangling themselves on the right edge, as obviously, this list is picked up from my blogroll. (I’m making a mental note to check blogroll soon.) I have also removed the HP excerpt for the same reason. Will have it back as soon as I figure out a way to do this. (Or if I give up in the process.)
* and there’s this huuuuge space after my blog, before the comments. And this happens with the first post on the page only… happening with both the main and the archive pages. Irukara space la pudhu blog-e ezhudhidalam poliruku…

Oh, by the way, how does this new template look? It’s not my goal in life to keep changing my template every week, but then, I saw this on someone’s blog and fell in love with the template. And you see where it’s led me. I’m yet to make it exactly the way I want it to be…. but I’m almost there. If any of you have any clues about the above two problems I’m facing, kindly let me know.

Comments on the template are welcome. I, for one, think it looks cool and is pleasing on the eye. (Krish, indha dhadavayum nee edhavadhu sonna en template pathi, adi vanguva.)
