Finally!

I do believe I finally have a working LiveJournal style.  (*=D)

I was able to modify the style sheets enough to make everything legible while still following a decent, uniform theme. I'm not sure if the visible color in the transparent GIF used as a background image in the "entry" tables is quite right, but I think it's pretty close.  (^*^)

Take a look! http://aekiy.livejournal.com/

People leaving comments on my journal will no longer be blind, either. All input fields have a black background color that works nicely with the scheme and makes everything plainly visible.

That is SO MUCH BETTER.
Very nice.

You might even want to make the text window a darker purple. It's still a little light for the blue text. IMHO.

ya, I was thinking that. I tried a few different colors and this one was better than the rest of them, but I'll have to fiddle with it more at some point. Done for the night, tho', I think. (^*^) Get to it tomorrow.. or at least after CS2 stuff is done updating.

oops.. I just now fixed it so comments on entries will have the same background. Didn't realize they used a separate style (.commentbox versus .entry).

I especially like the background :)

Thanks. (^*^) I've been using A Gift of Moonlight by ^zilla774 on deviantART for a long time now, but it's never quite worked out with the scheme. Finally, I think I have all the style and color adjustments about right. (Although I'll probably get around to making some minor adjustments here and there.. hm..)

I hate to say it, but the style is still awfully dial-up unfriendly--impossible to read before the background image is fully loaded. :-(

Well darn.. ya, it is a 60KB image (almost).. I dunno, I'll see if I can work something out there.

Only 60KB? It seems to take longer than that to load. Maybe that's just my impatience to read talking.

It looks like the basic colors before the image loads are pale blue and pink. Is there some way you could make that pink darker?

Actually, I just realized I've been taking out the page background color. I just tried changing that to black, so hopefully that will help.

Yes, that's much better! Thank you.

You're welcome. (^*^) And ya, the image is 59.81 KB. I can see if that's reducible some. Still fiddling with some colorings.

And of course I realized that the reason it seems to take so long for that image to load is because I'm not waiting for just that image to load, but that image plus all the other pictures on the page. Since people's icons have never been necessary for me to read anything, I don't notice how long they take; I just notice how much time it takes for me to be able to see the texty stuffs!

In any event, it's a very pretty layout when fully loaded, and now useful even when not fully loaded. Woo! :-)
