Psst.. looks like you forgot to close the p style=background:white. (At least, that's my guess as to why the white is running rampant over other parts of your entry.)
Looks fine to me. You don't have to close <P>.
Generally no, but check the entry out on my friends page (http://skreidle.livejournal.com/friends/nopix, scroll down a bit), whitespace overruns the current music, and on the reply-to-the-main-post (http://www.livejournal.com/users/jwz/405329.html?mode=reply) where it runs under your icon.)
It all looks fine in Mozilla. Your browser must suck.
Safari here. Looks the same in IE.xp and IE.mac.
I'm not saying anything's undreadable, just that the whitespace is running places it shouldn't.
Firefox 1.0 PR/Linux seems pretty happy with it. Must be a Mac thing.
Looks fine on a Mac using:
Camino - 2004110708 (v0.8+)andFirefox - 1.0 RC2
Also looks to be [what I consider] wrong on Firefox 1.0 on XP. White background from an entry shouldn't spill under icons or over external text, IMHO.
You should consider sending in a bug report. I'm sure the Firefox developers love it when a bug report comes in saying, "There is something wrong with Firefox on jwz's page!"
My browser is Mozilla :(
When you assign a style to <p>, it becomes a block element instead of just a spacer, and usually should be closed to define the end of the block.
<p> is always a block element, it's not a spacer! Argh!
I agree, but people do use it as simply a spacer. (Or, as JWZ did, as a spot to define a style.. without defining when the style ends.)
all tags must close, well acording to the xhtml standard anyways- which is more coherant. i.e. <img src="..." alt="some image" />
This is me peeing on you.
hehe.I SHALL NEVER WASH IT AGAIN.
( you have your revenge already- every time xscreensaver starts up and eats a bunch of my computers resources )
It's all good.
and that's why you can't win any of them.
keep thinking that way, the republicans thank you!
Err, it's a link to a Landover Baptist site...
I most sincerely invite you to grow a sense of humor.
... and I'm pretty sure it's on display here. But please, get real: A sense of humor is not really the done thing on this particular LJ. Where have you been?
also should i point out that in the "red states", anywhere from 30-49 percent of the people voted for kerry, and in the "blue states", an even larger percentage voted for bush? (e.g., massachusetts, stereotypical "blue state" -- 40% bush voters.)
Indeed, and he recently linked to graphics that show, by county and state, just how purple most of the voting areas were.
Also, the button is amusing, tongue-in-cheek. Unless, of course, one is an ignorant redneck. ;)
There's no place for irony in a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland. How do you think Tina Turner got away with that outfit?
We don't need another hero.
i thought it was because Jesus Loves Mel Gibson?
Well, Mel Gibson certainly loves Jesus. Truth be told, Jesus is a little creeped out by this.
If coming back and seeing all those crosses everywhere doesn't trigger his PTSD, Passion of the Christ definitely will!
In winner take all voting systems like just about every election in the country, a 40% minority doesn't get any power though.
u r hawt.
It isn't even about being redneck. It is about being ultraconservative. Many people I know who are financially successful are Republican. America is historically conservative. I know some rednecks, and their ideology. They are ususally not very financially responsible. I would like to see progressive change in our current ideology. But maybe that is wishful thinking.
True conservatives should be as repulsed by BushCo. as the Democrats, et al, are. I've never met a traditional conservative in favor of big government, fiscal irresponsibility, removal of civil liberties, and preemptive war.
Many of them are. Which should be a real opportunity for the dems, if they can seize it. Business folks are not real enchanted with the new religious Republican party.
Now there's something I can relate to because, of course, I'm part of the vast right wing conspiracy formed by the Illuminati for world domination and destruction!
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."
so did u know warren ellis mentioned DNA lounge's halloween party on his LJ?
Yep. I'm bummed I didn't run into him that night -- I met him the day before for about 30 seconds (before he had to run off and deface some comic books.)
darn...if only theyd come up with a way to digitally sign jpegs. i can get him to digitally sign my planetary collection...=P
That doesn't strike me as hard... an app that can overlay a signature, then cryptographically sign the file, a la PGP.
I assume you figure it's easier to get a UK-based creator to sign a file than to catch him at one of his infrequent US appearances to lay pen to paper?
You make me sad. You really do.
yeah, but then id like to display it on my walls. hmm...a bunch of smallish harddrives, a pc tablet screen...and maybe get warren ellis to not just simply write, but get him to do a flash animation of his signature on my collections. yeah, that would be nice...=D
>I assume you figure it's easier to get a UK-based creator to sign a file than to catch >him at one of his infrequent US appearances to lay pen to paper?
yeah, since im living waaaay out in South-East Asia...=P
The Register had this.
but this one is more vitrolic, perhaps?
http://www.fuckthesouth.com/ Useful links in there, too.
As I read through these comments, I find myself a little amazed you allow comments at all.
I know, man. Where do I go to hang out with the cool kids?
Oh, he tried that.
The only bigger shitheap than IRC is Yahoo Chat... :P
...which is why we should fuck the south, apparently.
At least 53% of us are anyway. But remember there are still some freethinkers around here.
There might even be a mild link between I.Q levels and how states voted.
If one places stock in such things.
Only an idiot would. That chart has been proven as nonsense mulitple times - I think there might be a mention of it on snopes - but I don't recall for sure.
Y'know.. I'm really sorry that the democrats lost... But really.. did you HONESTLY expect that fucking socialist to win?? I mean.. *really* now..? Find someone who's more moderate and who is in touch with the roots of what the democratic party used to be about - the Party of the Union worker, the Party of the Middle Class. Not the party of every whack-job, p-diddy, MTV-swilling, wank-ridden special interest out there.
The instant the left took Michael Moore seriously - I knew they were doomed.
JWZ, I thank you for letting the public at large post comments without fear of being banned. I don't agree with you politically - but you're a decent guy.
