Once again, I'm going to the internets for help.

You see my sidebar over there? It's a fucking mess. How do I line things up nicely so that they fall neatly one under the other? Obviously, hitting the return key twice in between each snippet of code isn't working. I am absolutely clueless when it comes to code, so if you have the answer, could you use speak very slowly and use small words?

I'm not sure if this will help or not, but to code up hard carriage returns, "< br/ >" (without the quotes or the extra spaces -- blogger won't let me comment with that in here otherwise) might do the trick. It's at least worth a try.

And (not to add more to your plate), but for some dumb reason, your entire template is effed up pretty bad when I view it using Windows XP and Firefox. Funny thing is it works just fine on a rather similar system/browser at home, but just not so at work. Don't know why. And when I say "effed up", I mean all white background, and all links stand out in white font (that's a joke -- I have to highlight the missing text to see who said what or find the comment link). Just an FYI.

I don't do blogger code so much, but the centering is in your CSS.

.sidebar {
font-family: tahoma;
font-size: 9pt;
color: #000000;
padding-top: 5px;
text-decoration: none;
background-color: transparent;

See where it says text-align:center; -?

Replace with text-align:left; and then margin-left:20px; or however big you want your left margin.

Hmmm, wait - before listening to me, that's going to change your cute image headers to aligned left too.

It should work to add

.sidebar img {

below the sidebar code. But I don't promise!

Julia uses blogger, so CSS coding won't help her. It's only in HTML.

Julia, if you're brave enough, send me your username and password and I'll attempt to line everything up. It probably just needs and extra < br > here and there. It won't take long.

That is, if that's the problem, of course.

The only thing I know to do it the < br > (without the spaces). other than that, I'm clueless, as usual.
