    Looks good. I really like how you have the little excerpt in each post.

    Just noticed a little glitch - when you hover over the days with posts in the calendar, the added bottom border makes the rest of the calendar jump a pixel. This can be easily fixed by setting the non-hover border to 1px solid white :)

    About the pullquotes & excerpts... the following code has to be inserted into your .css layout file:
    .pullquote p {
    float: left;
    width: 125px;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
    text-align: left;
    display: inline;
    padding: 7px;
    background-color: #F1F1F1;
    border-color: #CCC;
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 1px 0 1px;
    margin: 25px 10px auto 0px;
    font-size: 80%;
    }
    .pullquote p:first-letter {
    font-weight: bold;
    font-size: larger;
    }
    You'll want to change the colour, etc. to suit your own tastes.
    Now... you can either have the pullquotes generated automatically, or you can put them in yourself.
    To put them in yourself, just use a <p class="pullquote>Text to be in the pullquote</div>
    To have them generated automatically insert the following into your index.php like so:
    <div class="pullquote">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div>
    Just above the existing lines:
    <div class="storycontent">
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    </div>
    It is very important to note that in order to use the automatic function of the pullquotes, you must use the advanced editing mode when entering your post, and you must provide an excerpt to be used, otherwise the pullquote will contain nearly the entire text of the post!
    And... the pullquote .css code was provided most generously to me by http://www.w-a-s-a-b-i.com/
    Any other comments or questions, please feel free to leave me an e-mail, comment on the board, or a message here.

    Sorry about that, but some of that got munged!
    To use it manually:
    <p class="pullquote">This is the text you want quoted</div>
    I forgot the backticks <blush />

    My most humble apologies, but I've done it again! My only excuse for this is that I have been battling a brutally vicious migraine all day.
    To use the pullquote manually, it is:
    <p class="pullquote">Text
    And not:
    <div class="pullquote">Text</div>
    Again, I'm sorry for the mix up.
