Dear Rich; here's a short list of problems I came up with overnight, having decided that my earlier idea was simply impractical in terms of my expectations of your time ...
The table in the sticky post that's my NAVIGATION has its borders set at 1, but the verticals won't show.
They (the verticals) also won't show in a table I created within Windows Live Writer - in which they showed perfectly - in a post called "Experimenting with Window Live Writer".
And when I go back to the post and make the borders "0", it makes no difference whatsoever: horizontals only. :-(
I would dearly like to have no borders at all.
I've written about a thousand CSS entries for .post-8010 (the sticky) in order to remove its header and its meta footers. Each one worked originally, and then, after some hours, didn't: one or the other object appeared again ! (You'll think I've gone completely bonkers, now.) There is a shitload of replication in my CSS in this regard – not to mention those bits where I couldn't narrow down the original code from a bloody paragraph ...
<strike>The Search Box widget, just to be different, won't show its bottom horizontal !</strike> FORGET THIS ONE: instead, can you explain why, when I moved it to a different position in the column of widgets, it decided to show ALL its borders ? :-| Oh, never mind ...
In your opinion, are the two widgets informing of readers' activities the same line height ? - the top one seems to me more tight that the lower one ! :-}
I have forgotten how to centre widget headers without centring their content – wouldst remind an old fart ?
There now. The ravings of an obsessive. From me to you in hope of your having some time at some stage.
