It's been a long day of work on the site, many things have changed. There are still things about the design I want to change, but on the whole it looks better than it did 24 hours ago. I decided to split the data in the right column into boxes to breakup the solid block of colour. The Weather Pixie has made a welcome return, although might move location yet. Currently the right column is quite wide resulting in some space to the right of the boxes. I could reduce this but it's going to upset the titles in the pages section. Going to see how that plays out as the tweaking continues before deciding on a final solution.
The poll script I have been experimenting with is currently disabled. It works fine but the code it inserts isnt XHTML 1.0 Transitional Compliant and results in errors when I try to validate the site. I believe in being compliant with the standards, so the poll will remain disabled untilÂ it can be made to validate correctly.
