    I would love some feedback on my redesign. Even if it is "This doesn't work in opera" :)

    Personally,
    I think it's pretty awesome. Makes me a little jealous ;)
    Keep up the great work.

    David,
    excellent work. a lovely example.
    2 questions:
    1. how did you style the hover comments? yours look nice, i'd like mine to look nice too.
    2. your contact page, so nicely done.
    how did you do that?

    Dss, I could send you the contact.php if you want to take a look.
    About the hover comments... Do you mean the input and text areas or the actual comments themselves?
    Actual comments hover is styled with:

    ol#commentlist li:hover {
    background:#ffffff;
    }

    Law,
    The archives page is actually a work in progress because it won't completely validate as XHTML Strict (I get one error because I am trying to cheat my way through poor knowledge of php). I can't remember exactly where I got the code from but it was either from http://binarybonsai.com (search for archives.phps) or Laughing Lizard's plugin. I just played around with the code so that it did just what it is doing. Again, if you want the php you can have it (and if you improve it maybe you would share). Just let me know.

    indeed, the nicer archives are totally the way to go.
    what i meant about the pop up hover descriptions was the pop up tool tips. when your pop up they are styled and look much better than the default.
    how'd you do that?

    Oh.. You mean the nice title attributes.
    It is a bit of javascript from: http://neo.dzygn.com/archive/id/34

    Problems with it and why I might get rid of it:
    The CSS doesn't validate yet because of some moz opacity bits.
    It doesn't work in Safari, as far as I can tell.

    Hmm.. Maybe it is because I have Safari 1.0

    Very nice. The areas that are particularly impressive:
    - colors work very well together
    - navigation is easy to follow / use
    - content boxes, etc. are very clean and add to ease of use/reading
    - blockquotes/quotes are really cool ... like that a lot
    - the front page vine going through the "Reflection | Comments" navigation is very cool, too
    - shadow edges/slight bevel, also a nice touch and - it loads fast, actually ... how neat!
    One of my favs, so far ... and I usually don't like those that render in a narrow static column way ... but this one is pretty! and easy to read! (narrow, of course, being a personal concept of what 'width' is actually narrrow)
    Thanks for sharing it.

    Looks very nice. I like the comments system, the archives... everything looks great.

    I took a look with Firefox, on Windows and it looks great.
    one nit-pick is that I would soften the mouse-over color in the sidebar, but, like I said, a nit-pick
