New blog template brought to you by Blogger in Beta. Last night I switched over to this newly available version, and chose a new template. Then spent a little bit of time tweaking it, but I was unable to bring the main column's width to a longer width without messing up some other parts of the template.
Oh well. For the most part, it should not make much difference. The only reason I had to adjust the width before was because of some bugs in the template that would cause IE to not display things properly, which I think they've fixed. Some of my older entries also made use of the wider space, but who'd read those backlogs, anyway?
