    Seeing that 1.3 is shaping up rather nicely, I thought I'd take a stab at designing a theme from the ground up. My limited creativity resulted in christening the theme "v30" (as this is my third site design).
    My last site was based on Kubrick; this layout is entirely of my own design. It's currently a work-in-progress, so any and all input is welcome.

    Like the transparent hued navigation and the entry dates. Lots to like there. :)

    hey, that's pretty nice..... how hard is it to change the color scheme of something like that?

    Hey, sorry about the way I originally posted. I forgot to enter my password. Bah.
    Anyway, it's pretty simple to change the color scheme. I'm working at simplifying it more though. As is, I'm using Photoshop image slices... so changing the scheme involves a paintbucket on the different slices and altering a few lines in the stylesheet (for link color, etc).
    As far as downloading goes, I'm not going to consider it until I'm done with the design. I'll make an announcement somewhere if/when I've decided to unleash the design to the world.

    A few minor touchups and a major css structure overhaul... and I think I'm done with it. Does anyone think I should bother make the page more scalable? (so major user-controlled font-size increases are handled correctly)
    And seeing as I don't have access to Safari, does anyone on OS X care to comment on how it looks?
    Thanks.

    I don't see anything different in Safari (v85.8). Looks great!

    imichaelj -- Hmmmm PS image slices, eh? I hope the resulting images will also be included? As I don't have access to PS, slicing is a bit cumbersum (as I found out when switching to Kubrick).
    Drop me a line when it's ready, I'd be more than happy to take it for a spin.

    Tg, I can include the images, no problem... they're in png at the moment, but I'm more than willing to add jpg and gif exports to the mix.
    Alright, you guys have convinced me. I'll do a public release of this theme. I was thinking about adding gravatar support to the comments and making the comments section a little nicer... but I can just pop that into a newer version. I'll put the theme up for download in a few days. (I'd like to do a little testing across as many browsers as possible first, even though the entire thing validates as xhtml and css).
    Any suggestions for what I should replace the upper-right image with for a release? (As I think I'm the only one who finds imichaelj.org relevant).

    Heh, this may be crazy, but how about an image that says "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent", just to see how many users say, "Your template gives me an error!" Then again, this is always a good one too: http://anekdota.dyndns.org/jotd18/att-0041/01-error.jpg ...won't scare Mac users though.
    BTW, great template!
