There is nothing like the sense of accomplishment from a job well done. And, every once in a while, I get a design problem stuck in my head. Often, it is about attempting to work with limited tools.
With this site migration to drupal, I decided that my entire theme would be built in css, no hacks, and no extra images. I began by matching my original Google Sites theme, but with the new functionality, I needed to go a bit further. Using some CSS tricks (including font embedding, text-shadow, position:absolute, and display:after), I’ve came up with a theme that I really like. And, it seems to degrade well on older browsers.
If you see anything that looks a bit “off”, let me know.
