So, amazingly mad props to blueImpulse, who put together this great Loveless skin for the site complete with images. (She says the images came from a site called Sozaiya NITRO.) Actually she made three versions, from which I chose the one I liked the best. I like it so much, in fact, that it's now the default skin for new visitors to the site. If you choose "Loveless" from the drop-down in the sidebar, those of you who are long-time visitors will see what the hubbub is about.

*blushes* Thank you, Torgen. ^_^

I was wondering what was up with the empty space between your post and the comments when it first showed up - looked like a bug with the stylesheet, but changing to the Popotan skin didn't change a thing Seems like the empty space was gone, though.

(Speaking of bugs, if you find any problems with the skin, just post here and let me know!)

Blogger started adding a <div style="clear:both;"></div> to all posts--it's not part of the template, so I can't take it out. All I can do is make it "!important" that div tags have clear:none.

blueImpulse - i'm having to use css in an assignment, was wondering how u manage to get the alpha to work in IE without requesting activeX?
u can contact me from www.tea-ware.net thanks! ^_^

Time to answer some questions from posters above me (possibly a little late coming, since I work from 9 to 5):

valentine:
When you say that "Not all of us run default white backgrounds", do you mean that you're using a user-created stylesheet that overrides any stylesheet that I have made?

www.tea-ware.net:
The notation that I used was filter: alpha(opacity=x), where x is a number from 0 to 100 (0 is most transparent, 100 is most opaque). This notation works for IE4.0 and above. The conventional notation that requires ActiveX that you talked about is:
filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(opacity=x),
which has the same meaning as the above statement, only wtih a longer filter call. Microsoft endorses this form of the statement for IE5.5 and above. I got it from:
http://dicolive.media-box.net/docCSS/css.php?orderByList=1&id=186 (original document in French).

I wish IE7 will support the Web standards-based property of opacity: 0.9 (the number ranges from 0 to 1), though...

<Torgen> Next I'll claim that my translations are perfect, and any apparent errors are really elaborate typos.
<MSH> typos introduced by the keyboard of course, not by you!
<Torgen> naturally.
<_bla_> Torgen: why is group called "we suck" then not "my keyboard sucks" ?
<Torgen> typo.
<Torgen> Tyreal: not enough room in your nick for |sucks?
<Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment> crap!
<Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment> I suck!
* Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment is now known as Tyreal|Enlightenment|Sucks
<Tyreal|Enlightenment|Sucks> phew
<Tyreal|Sucks> Torgen: how DID you do those DVD type subs by the way :P
<Tyreal|Sucks> just got fonts that looked like that, or used an actual dvd subtitling proggie
<Torgen> It's Arial.
<Torgen> I used TextSub.
<Tyreal|Sucks> ahh
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: THERE YOU ARE
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: do you really think I suck ;_;
<Torgen> no.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> oh good
<Torgen> I was a little worried that it'd be interpreted that way, though.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: nah, I just laughed for about 2 hours
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> When I started getting pm's about it
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> "You're from we-suck"
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> apparently we-suck is popular with the french
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Don't ask me why XD
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> They say they want to "worship you"
<Torgen> I'll put you in parenths next time so it's clear you just post the raws.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> no, put Tyreal|Sucks in there
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> I'm amused by this now, I kind of like it XD
<Shouta> <WeSuck> You = my bitch
<Torgen> Yeah, it's like taking the ghost suit of the ghost lego man and putting it on the astronaut lego man.
<Torgen> The ghost lego man is now just a normal lego man with a featureless face.
<Torgen> while the astronaut gets to look out through the ghost suit's eyeholes.
<Spyre> Torgen that has to be the best analogy ever.
<Spyre> Thats EXACTLY what its like!
* Spyre is in awe
<kara|hw> i told crustol...
<kara|hw> '私解析していてちょっぴり濡れちゃった。'
<kara|hw> he hasnt talked to me in a while

<AWAY-Bomb|AutoShow> Whee!
<AWAY-Bomb|AutoShow> Suck!
<Torgen> no, because Hawaii would have been right
<Torgen> but it was wrong.
<Torgen> so it was left.
<Torgen> :(foot)
<Torgen> Think you could co-produce some Gundam show with cat girls in it?
<Jekichu-clone> gundam....cat girls...
<Jekichu-clone> ...
<Jekichu-clone> ....
<Jekichu-clone> no
<Torgen> Like have cat-girls (and boys, and women, and men) instead of Newtypes or Coordinators...
<Torgen> or whatever other gundam series had.
<Jekichu-clone> laf, thats straight up pornographic
<Torgen> think of the ratings!
<Jekichu-clone> rawwwrrrr
<PyRC> basket, if everything is recursive, maybe there are no fansubs.
<Torgen> And Ensei doesn't sound like I expected him to when I first saw him...
<Torgen> He looks all gruff...
<Torgen> and he sounds so comical.
<arcImpulse> and you expected...
<Torgen> him to sound all gruff, like those assassins...
<Torgen> but he sounds uncultured;
<Torgen> not rogueish.
<Torgen> it's like, if he said "wanna come over and watch the game?" I'd take a moment to realize that was an anachronism.
<arcImpulse> if you think he sounds weird... just wait till we get to Eccentric Kou
<arcImpulse> and you'd be like...holy anachronism~~
<Torgen> what, does Kou sound like a robot or something?
<arcImpulse> damn, I couldn't fool you, ne?
