I've begun some serious development work on the WordPress version of this. If you want to see what's going on and give your two cents, you can click the Orientation::Quilter II link in the blogroll at left or go here. I'm sort of done with the styling of the two sidebars. Now it's on to the title area and the ordering of the main content area.
Jolly. That whole CSS thing is coming back to haunt me. Mainly what I spent last night doing is doing trial and error hunting to determine what style codes are attached to what (hence some of the funkier font uses still in place). Commenting! Or - CLEAR commenting code writers!
