In other news...

I am trying to fix the layout here so it doesn't hurt anybody's eyes, but apparently the only options that I like all have art at the top.

Does anybody know a way to either ditch the art or make a version that at least has much smaller art? Big top-bars waste browsing space on a blog, damnit! (And if it's not possible, how do I make one with MY art? I mean, the tree here is inoffensive, but I don't love it...)

I have no knowledge of CSS and am depressed that I have to muck about with the LJ themes at all, but I had to upgrade to S2 in order to get the subtitles back on collapsed journal comments, because that was making me batshit insane.

ETA: Nevermind, found some things that allow custom colors on simpler designs. Still aggravating. Apologies for wild shifts in color and style while browsing for the next few minutes.

I just have a really hard time reading white-on-black text. I don't read much on Livejournal so I've only seen the default black-on-white.

If I wasn't already reading your blog, I don't know if I would want to start, just because it strains my eyes so much. As it is, I'll probably just copy and paste into a Word document so I can see it to read it.

Is the font under your control, or mine? I don't mind white on black, but this is too thin to read without flickering, and making it bolder might make it need to be larger...

This is dreadful. I am unable to adjust the text size from the browser to improve readability. I'm going to ask one of my students who uses a screen reader to see how this responds to that software.

I must admit I like the previous layout better since it has larger font size. I also like dark gray background on white fonts too.

You can force ANY livejournal to display in your layout by adding: ?style=mine to the end of the url.

For example: http://ursulav.livejournal.com/?style=mine

Here's the Livejournal FAQ on it: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=175
