Are you really going to a format where there is only a short column down the middle to read from?

Please, say no. Yes, the martini glass was cool, but I'd rather not have a newspaper column to read, please.

Liked the Marine logo, too.

Oh, one more comment from a former Word Processing Supervisor. If you're going to justify the right margin, please use a proportional font.

Can you describe it a bit more, Ms. Anna...

posted by: Eric on January 2, 2004 08:58 PM

In fact, why not run all the extra's down just one side like you currently have?

DANG! Somone who actually enjoys my CONTENT!! Heheheheh.......Ms. Anna...you are a STAR...*hugs & kisses*.......

Your comments are in a proportional font, after posting,not before. But the right margin isn't justified, it's ragged.

Are you still there, Eric?

Double damn. The comments over at the new site are also justified, the left margin is wider than the right margin of the comment column. In fact, there is no right margin.

There's also a lot of lost space in the central column format as it's set-up right now.

I hope you're only gone to make sure the kiddies are in bed on time at 9 p.m.

Eric, on my screen, the new comment section has my little-finger width of left margin, and only just a hair over 1/8" on the right margin.

Regarding the margins on the center column. There's one thumb-width on the left margin and only my little-finger's width on the right justified margin.

Hope I've been some help?

Go Marines!

It's all my fault for putting in the telephone number, but I sure wish you would delete it pretty quick. I had forgotten we had exchanged e-mails about Pensacola, the Marine Corp Ball and Trader John's. I had your address, already. I should have stayed in Kindergarten teaching, anyway, instead of graduating to teaching first grade, back in Pensacola.

Eric, I promise, I'm not drunk! I mixed up the center column margins. Switch what I wrote, the left margin is only a little-finger's width, and the right-justified margin is the thumb-width. The difference just sticks out like a sore thumb!

Justification is better if you have the ability to check for hyphenation, and do so, but then you'd have to get one of those little books like I have and can't find right now. It's about 4"x5"x1" and is fantastic for a quick spelling look-up, as well as for hypenation. It's called something like "The Word Book." It used to be practically mandatory for a secretary to have it. It's still handy for those words that you haven't come close to spelling correctly, and SpellChek has no idea what you meant. The book is red with white titles. No definitions, just lots of good, correctly spelled words, with syllables marked and pronunciation accents. My gosh, that saying "use it, or lose it" is so correct. I'll quit and go back to paying attention to the Fiesta Bowl.

I can see the MadLab version in Mozilla, neat.
Yes, not nearly as helpful as Ms. Anna, but that's just me. :)

Ms Anna, if you could leave the comments over at the test lab, it would be earier for me to correct whatever you are seeing. Also, I need to know what browser and version you are using and what resolution you are viewing the site in.

I am also going to format the old stylesheet and leave a button on the left sidebar for you people that want to view the site in the old format. But you are going to have to do a lot of work to get there... push the button! But, first, let's get this one de-bugged and up for Eric to use.

You are going to hate me, but I actually like this original one better. No offense to your designers. That one is too busy - to cluttered for my taste. The text is too big too. I'm not crazy about the 3 columns either. Maybe I'm weird...

Sorry but I really do like this one better, even though it's generic. If you could make the new one with 2 columns and a slightly smaller font, I would like it better. I do love the Marine loge and the martini glass though.

This one looks really good here. Whatever you decide to change, please LEAVE the eagle, globe and anchor!!!

This works great for me, too. I can see everything and the comments are fine...
I know it's an inherant guy-thing, but...if it ain't broke, do ya's HAVE to fix it?
This is good just like it is.

Stevie, are you talking about the testlab site? Have you looked at it since last night? Does your browser work ok with it?
