Site Style Updates

I’ve finally redone the styles on the main page. Now the work begins to style the blog. I’ve never done any work with WordPress themes or PHP, so it should be interesting :)

On the styles for the main page, I picked blue and a reddish orange color as the main colors for the site. I like blue and I feel like that plus the red give it the feel of a super patriot political site – or a superman site. I’m not really sure, but I like it.

I used CSS 3 to get rounded corners on the main area and the bottom of the navigation. I’m a little sad that it doesn’t work in IE, but I’d rather not go through the messy hassle of doing rounded corners the “old way.” Besides, this isn’t a paid professional job I’m doing, its my personal website and I think I can get away with a non-IE style. Besides, IE 9 will be coming out eventually and it should handle the round corners just fine (it had better!).

I also used a little JavaScript to change the “powered by” text in the page footer. There aren’t many items in there right now, I wasn’t feeling overly funny when I wrote it up :) Suggestions are welcome.
