dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.


Thanks for the compliments, but I’m still looking for Relton’s “elegant presentation.”  I’m not there, yet.  A few issues.  Firebird is not displaying the two main columns on the page flush top.  The baselines of ‘Navigate’ and the first date should line up.  Hah.  Internet Explorer is only allowing the smallest shim of space as a clickable area for my permalinks (“Heaven forfend, he used negative margin sizes!  Call the Spanish Inquisition!”).

Later: Fixed.  The CSS will still get renovated, but display is more consistent now.  Adding in those little touches from the previous DM.

This is what I get for hitchhiking the existing design, rather than designing from scratch.  Remember that ... it’s usually best to design with CSS from the inside-out, rather than the outside-in.  I think you’ll catch my meaning.

There’s also been a request for full-text RSS feed.  Any preferences between excerpts and full-text?  I haven’t had time to deal with the RSS feeds yet ... but slapping them into FeedDemon showed they exhibit that annoying tendency to require a return to my page, before hitting the outgoing link.  I’ll work on that, after I get this design wrung out, I promise.
