Design switch

This weblog has changed under the hood: the code is cleaner. Everything is CSS based. It doesn’t validate yet, but it will. There have been only a few minor tweaks to the design itself. It pushed most of the templating away from Tinderbox and up to the server.

The next step will be to circumvent the HTML export of Tinderbox completely and publish everything directly from a database (by converting the XML file into RDBMS tables). It will also reduce the number of agents (like the ones that collect the weblog posts for each category).

Update 5/29/2006: Some people asked me about how I did the rounded corners. Actually I am using CSS 3 styles for that which is implemented partially in Webkit (Safari) and Mozilla/Firefox. I don’t use any CSS tricks (even if I could).
