This is just a very minor update to show off just how much time I have wasted today.
If you’re viewing this through the wiki, you’ll have to go over here and see the prettified version I use for a home-page.
All that has changed in this case is the frame: it now looks like it was originally intended to look: the edges of the borders nearest to the main content box (in the middle) are now the same colour as the content box, and all the fades line up correctly, thanks to the miracle of CSS. The page is still Impure in the eyes of many though: it uses tables for layout, an unforgiveable no-no by many modern standards. It does this because the CSS-clean way of doing things will not yield columns of equal length with correctly scaling background images. For that I needed the bastard mixture you see here.
Fortunately, unlike some non-specific Pento and Thingalon, I am not attempting to appease any CSS style-nazis. I just don’t care.
