    I can see the logo when i use Firbird but i cant see it when using Internet Explorer. Any ideas why?
    I put it in place of the text.

    Looks to me like it's just a case of IE being retarded, so to speak. Try replacing /images/site/logo.gif with the full path to the image, http://www.simonsrealm.net/images/site/logo.gif.
    IE tends to be quite odd like that. It's never a bad idea anyway though to use absolute paths instead of relative ones.

    I think wantmoore is right...I looked at the HTML, and it seems fine to me, although the XHTML validator thinks that there should be a closing at the end of the HREF part of the code, just before the IMG part.
    Why can't everybody just go Firebird? :)

    I couldn't agree more. Maybe we can all band together and get some big name computer maker to start bundling it? Heck, the W3C should help fund a project to mass mail a CD containing Firebird/Thunderbird as well as all the other browser's under the Mozilla umbrella. We would all benefit from not having to make crap-tacular changes to our code to make it "look" right in IE. *sigh* Sorry for the slightly off-topic rant, but someone has to say it!

    I was just reading on your blog there and thought I would offer some assistance. Do you by chance have access to PHPmyAdmin? You noted that WP wouldn't let your backup in, just curious as to what sort of backup you did. I'll be more than glad to assist you in trying to import your old stuff if you want the help. Just let me know.

    Thanks but the posts are not the biggest problem. It was only two months as that is when i switched over to wp. My biggest "arrgh" is the design.

    Hello again,
    I don't know if you've seen this, or maybe you're wanting something completely original, but Alex's new style switcher is pretty cool. Plus, there are some really neat templates already there for the competition he is holding.
    Hope you get things working the way you want.

    From looking at the source, and your css, you are declaring things in the actual layout that are not specified in the css.
    From source:
    <li id="navigation">Navigation
    so somewhere in the css should be something that defines just what style to apply to anything within a 'navigation' declaration.
    This is how I have my links appear:
    [li][a href='http://www.metacritic.com/']metacritic[/a][/li]
    [li][a href='http://www.michaelmoore.com/']michael moore[/a][/li]
    Links part of the admin screen - name the category, add the link, and the default css takes care of how it looks.
    (brackets should be the pointy ones..I changed them (where *is* that widget))
    I'm not quite sure what you mean by having titles / links separate .. is there a page you could point to to illustrate ?
