    Larry, the post below this one pushed the sidebar to the bottom, and the comment feature isn't there. Some squirrel must have screwed with the code. 😉

    That's strange, as I don't see any of that on my Macbook right now. Comment feature works, although there was a few minutes' right after posting it where I disabled comments because I didn't care about having responses just yet. But it works now and the screen looks normal to me.

  • Gabriele C. says:

    Odd, because it still looks off to me, and the comment feature line is simply not there. I use IE8 (can't install 9 under XP on this old computer) but your blog has never looked funny before. It happens to me when I forget to close a tag (usually the /span one) but I don't know if you code your posts individually.

    Very strange,as I just checked it on IE on my parents' laptop (I only use OS X/iOS and all those display fine in all the browsers I have) and I see what you mean. No, it wasn't any special code (I used Blogger's quote tags and used Georgia font for the quoted part), so it must just be some screw-up with IE.Maybe such Firefox, Chrome, or Safari and see if it works there as those do for me on my Mac?

  • Larry Nolen says:

    It also seems to be a problem in Opera (checked it on my iPad), so I don't know what Blogger has done. I'll edit shortly and see if there's any odd HTML (not that I know much about it).

  • Larry Nolen says:

    There was some odd HTML in the section I copied. I deleted it and it works on Opera, so perhaps it'll work for IE now?

  • WoW, interesting, you did a good job. Please keep going.

  • Gabriele C. says:

    It works in IE now as well.
