just for the record...  
...I would like to make it blazingly clear that I cannot abide Livejournal's customization capabilities. Also, I apologize to people who look at my homepage and who do not have their screens set to the same resolution I do, but apparently somewhere along the line I determined I probably looked at it more than anybody else did, and started optimizing for 1152x864. It's obnoxious beyond belief and if I were a real web designer I'd do something about it. Thank God I got to grow up to be a writer.

The website *works*. It does not look the way I want it to look. And it does a weird ass thing with buttons, in that it makes them only function if you mouse over the left side of the button graphics.

I spent a day attempting to set up two different versions of the page for different browsers. At the end of that day, it still didn't work. Personally, that's more than enough time for me to devote to it after the days I spent getting it to work in one browser.

I used to do far more website design than I do now. Back then, I'd probably have chased down whatever was causing the issues. I just don't have the time or inclination now. It's enough for me that it's functional at all.

Aha! Okay, I thought it wasn't functional. :)

Honestly, you shouldn't need to set up two versions... but what web designers usually recommend you do is write it for Firefox and then add in the "fixes" for IE's screwed up way of doing things, because the reverse is just headache-inducing.

Of course, this is all coming from the woman who said "screw it" in regards to CSS and used frames. ;)

You and me both.
