After trying out Tarski and Titan I think I am set on the Misty Look theme. I've managed to make a number of CSS changes -- as a total newbie -- that I am happy with thanks to all the wonderful support here.
I do wish I could alter a few more things in the code and I am wondering if you all can give me some clue as to how much of a pain in the neck these changes might be. First, I would really love to have the post/text area slightly wider (like I was able to do somewhat easily with other themes). This area is currently defined by a box, so I suspect I would have to go in and alter the box dimensions, and sidebar dimensions among other things. Do you think this is something a newbie could accomplish without making too much of a mess of the theme, or adding too many gray hairs? If it isn't I'll just let it go and deal with the narrow columns.
And secondly, for the life of me I can't get the sidebar heading fonts to change color or font family no matter how hard I try. I found what I thought was the code for these headings, I can't get them to budge. Any thoughts on that would be much appreciated too!
