I’m going to be experimenting a bit with the style here to get something a bit, in my opinion, more attractive. Please step around whatever messes there may be and (to the best of your ability :) ) enjoy Timothy’s Burden.
Update: Okay, I got this new style to a usable point, though there is still quite a bit I want to customize.
The 9rules image definitely needs some attention as I have no idea how to do silky-smooth alpha tranasperencies on PNG images so it doesn’t look good against that colored background. And, I have only been testing using Firefox, but will double check everything in Internet Explorer and Opera as time goes on. Enjoy.
