    Doesn't look bad at all, although a bit too grey :)

    Personally I would never put text on the far left side of the browser and make it stretch. It's a fact that it's more pleasant to read text when the 'block' has a limited width of, let's say, 400 - 500 pixels.

    @gingerbeer2000: In your index.php, you probably have the following 2 tags near the top:
    <?php bloginfo('name'); ?>
    <?php bloginfo('description'); ?>

    Removing those tags should get rid of the header text over your logo. As for your text links being invisible.... I can see them just fine; did you already fix them? If not, what web browser are you using?

    just open index.php and scroll down where you have sidebar.
    You will see that there are comments like these:

    <!-- The Calendar is disabled per default. Uncomment if you want to use it.

  9. <h2><?php _e('Calendar'); ?></h2>
    <?php get_calendar(); ?>
  10. -->

    Uncomment them by removing the "<!--" and "-->" from this.

    Maybe it doesn't bother you at all but if you check out your blog without the css you will notice that something is missing ;)
    ..exactly, the title! and maybe a description...
    True, there is very few people around with netscape 4 or some other very old browser but what about handheld devices not supporting css like wap2 phones or similar stuff?
    This is just for the sake of discussion man, no one reads my blog with a cell phone except for myself!
    But what about screen readers? Also your banner img is css background so with no stylesheet the user doesn't have any clue about blog's title/description...
    Think about it but don't worry too much, is just my 2:00 AM bulshitting! :)
    Oh by the way, what i did was hiding it with a display:none; css proprety.

    a couple quick notes:
    I don't know about subsequent builds, I am using ver. 1.2 (yes I needto update) > I found ditching either or both of>
    2 tags near the top:
    <?php bloginfo('name'); ?>
    <?php bloginfo('description'); ?>
    created fatal parse errors, Did'nt think of css display:none; but that would'nt have helped me as I wanted to use an image logo in the div bg. what I did was to force the name to the very top of the blog and made the font-size:.1em; that worked great for me as it is still there and still clickable but virtually invis. yet you can see the cursor hover property change. It happens to be right over the top of the first letter of the blog name so it is kinda kewl :)
    plz take a look, I am fighting poker spam bots so depending on when you arrrive and where I am at with re: to that issue will influence if you try to post.
