Josh has helped yet another blog with his post about fixing up the blog to look better!

Mine is still a work in progress, of course. I'll play with colors another day.

One strange problem I had was that I was unable to use the Custom CSS Selectors section.... none of the CSS I put in would work there, because for some reason the Secondary CSS header would not update.

So I stuck mine in a <style type="text/css"> section instead. No idea why that was needed, but since it appears to work I will not quibble.

The current version of .Text allows a "color" style sheet or a custom style sheet...the admin UI does not make this obvious.

In the next version, you can use all three style sheets:

Well, at least not intuitive enough for me to figure out. :-)

Adding the section to the HTML works, I just couldn't figure out how to do it any other way....

The reason it does not work on your site is that the basic style you picked (marvin3-blue) defines its secondary style sheet for you (if you look at the HTML you will see <link id="SecondaryCss" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="/skins/marvin3/blue.css"></link>. The only Marvin that lets you set the secondary styles in the box is the basic Marvin3.

Aha, that explains it!

Thanks again, Josh!
