    Huh. I like the idea of having the main thing centered, I'm wondering about how to do that, but I don't like my poetry centered. Is that possible?

    Yes, the container can be centered with the poetry flush left.
    I post the change in a few minutes...

    Here you go:

    It's poetry-- make it anything you want. The possibilities are infinite.
    Hate the colors-- change 'em. Same for the fonts, font-sizes, whatever does it for you and your poetry.
    The only change I made to the php file is the opening and closing of a new division id #rap
    All style changes are modifications of the CSS file. The CSS is embedded. I didn't validate the code. I think you may have HTML errors. I didn't attempt any corrections.

    You may find this article of value. It deals specifically with typography for poetry:

    Thanks, everyone, for generally liking it and all the suggestions. Willneea, I liked some of what you did, and I'll work on it more soon. The typography article seems to want to make posting poetry online way more of an issue than it needs to be.

    I'm sorry you feel that way.

    How about putting a "Powered by WordPress" link down at the bottom of the site to let everybody who visits know just what Blogging tool you love. =)

    Yes. Of course.

    I had one there, but it looked dumb after I put the creative commons link in. There is a wordpress link on the about page.

    Is there some particular reason, that I am unaware of, that is preventing you from centering the layout horizontally?

    I prefer it un-centered as well :)

    I have no issue with "un-centered" if there is a reason for it and it works, for example:

    http://bmson.is/blog/
    In Rense case, it's just stuck there.
