First off, I've never done any html or CSS etc. before, so try to endure...
I've read all the "read this first" material and I understand that you can change the appearance with CSS, but not html or PHP code, so I was wondering what _sort_ of changes you can really do.
I'm on Hemingway and pretty happy with the theme. What I want to do is this:
*Make normal text darker. The light grey on the bright white has bad readability
*Change the widget headlines (About, Recently, Blogroll etc.) to more fitting words in Swedish
*Make my static front page more "narrow" (so you can see more bottombar) by thinning the blank space underneath the page headline
Can you do all this with CSS despite not being able to modify PHP/html? I just asking so I know if learning how to do this will be worth the effort.
