You’ll have to excuse us today – my brother (and web admin) Steve and I are working out how the blog should look. For those of you in the biz, we’re trying out a “fixed” vs. “fluid” text layout and playing with the font.
Personally, I don’t like it when individual entry pages (aka the “comment” pages) have sentences that go for 16 inches across your screen before breaking to the next line. I lose my place, and it encourages skimming, but then again, my web habits are weird. Any thoughts on this or a redesign?
And now for your help:
Okay, make sure you’re on the main blog page, not an individual entry. In the first paragraph above, on what word does the line break back to the left margin? Then click on the “comments” button below and look again (since that takes you to the individual entry page that removes all the links at left).
For instance, on my page, the word “fixed” is the beginning word of the second line. On the “comments” page, the second line is already the start of the next paragraph (“Personally”).
I know it all depends on how big you typically open your browser windows, but that’d be good info to know before we make any “fixed” widths. If you know what I mean. Too complicated? Probably, but I don’t ask much of you lot, do I?
