Layout woes

Actually, the Expressive layout and theming options are very cool. I like them. A lot. In fact, my journal, although lacking a header image and some background stuff, now looks very nice indeed.

Small problem though; it doesn't work properly in IE. [livejournal.com profile] burkesworks has confirmed that the profile column appears to overlap the main entry column, which it does for me as well when I check using it. As I haven't actually touched the column positioning myself, it means it's actually a problem their end, so I've opened a support request. In the meantime, my journal looks pretty good in Fx, OK in Safari, and both unreadable in parts and fugly in IE. Hopefully, we can deal with the unreadable bits, but the fugly bits? I'm using stuff from CSS3, which IE isn't implementing at all. I looks good my end.

Bah, who cares. The BBC is going to repeat Dangermouse having bought the rights. I mean, I can't watch it, but still, that's cool, it means a whole new generation of people encounter Penfold.

Oh, the signed Jasper Fforde book I mentioned I bought yesterday? It had a postcard custom made by him half way through, of one of his made up villages. Very very cool.

It looks awesome though.

Mine is taking longer, but I'm doing it from the ground up so to speak, so.

(P.S. Mine has always looked awful in IE. But I give the finger to IE users.)

I will endeavour to do so. But if I set out to, it inevitably fails. Woe.

Love your icon, though.

I viewed it with IE 7 Release Candidate 1. Apart from the Mozilla-specific border code, the only other rendering bug I can see is that the border cuts out where your userpic is shown in the profile box, but this is very tempramental and sometimes scrolling the browser window can cure it.

IE7 recognises conditional comment tags (http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menu/conditional.html) insertable into the CSS which might help clear up some compatability issues.
