    Since I have seen a lot of redesigns were using more white space and going for a less is more angle. I thought I would try my hand at the clean slate theme of page design.
    I am on WP 1.3 alpha 4 using the style switcher and the Fujiyama by Root (http://atthe404.com/blog) style base with a great deal of my own hacking.

    Great looking site!
    How did you do the headlines?

    The headlines are created through a PHP file that creates images out of text using what ever true type font file you want and have installed in your root directory.

    One comment about the plugin... I have different fonts for the title image and the post-titles so I use two different php files. The other things is that I use different ones for different stylesheets, which is a limitation of using a straight plugin.

    I get this error: Error: Server does not support PHP image generation
    What do I need to install to get it to work? I'm running Apache on Linux.

    The fonts are cool, but graphics aren't machine-readable (or readable by, for example, blind people using text-to-speech). You might try sIFR -- http://www.mezzoblue.com/archives/2004/10/26/sifr/index.php -- it's like the image-as-text thing you're using, but much, much better.

    Wouldn't text-to-speech use the alt text? In which case, it would work jsut fine.

    It should use the Alt text which is indeed in the code, also if you read the post he still uses image replacement because of the speed problems with sIFR. I don't have enough traffic, nor anyone I know of that has a problem with the image replacement.

    goodsnake, the "speed problems" is caused by 1) the downloading of the files (happens only once) and 2) overuse of sIFR on very large pages. Aside from the example in the MezzoBlue discussion I haven't heard of any problems. Just give it a try!

    (P.S. It would be handy if the forum software would complain if you use a wrong login, anyway, the comment above is mine!)
