Simplified CSS for

As I’m pretty happy with the most recent changes to the layout, I’ve taken the opportunity to simplify the CSS used on the site.

In particular, I’ve banished negative margins. They’re very powerful, but I’ve never felt very comfortable with them.

The site now renders a little less well in Internet Explorer 5 (IE5), but it’s still perfectly usable (just a few minor alignment issues). IE5 market share is falling steadily, so while I intend to make sure the site continues to work well in IE5 (it’s about 2% for my sites now), I’m not going to resort to scary pieces of CSS to make everything pixel perfect.

IE6 (73%), Firefox (18%), Safari (3%) and Opera (1%) will continue to be the focus of my attention, with some IE7 testing in the near future.
