minimalism: planet caravan

EDIT 2: Chrome/Safari bug is FIXED! :D

I decided to play around with Minimalism here -- the bar on the side of each entry varies between five different colors, depending on the entry ID. It's actually a lot more randomized than it looks in the preview; it ended up going from darkest -> lightest purely out of coincidence. Surprisingly enough, it didn't break in IE.

(Btw, I'm pretty sure there's one thing I'm forgetting to fix in the stylesheet, or address here, but I can't remember what. I'll edit this once I do. 8|)

upload images
The following icons were uploaded to Tinypic, which I've known to be pretty good with not deleting stuff, but you might want to up them to your own account to ensure that they stick around.

change the colors
At the end of the stylesheet, you can find this block of code:
dl[id$="4"], dl[id$="9"] {
dl[id$="2"], dl[id$="8"] {
dl[id$="3"], dl[id$="6"] {
dl[id$="7"], dl[id$="1"] {
dl[id$="5"], dl[id$="0"] {
Simply change the hex values to your own colors.

It's okay, if it's a bug I'm all for trying to root it out! However, I did recheck your journal with Chrome (I also run Win 7) and I don't see anything wrong. Did you fix it in the meantime, or is the issue still there?

Also, I hate to ask, but did you edit anything in the code? :O I'm only curious because I'm having difficulty reproducing the problem. Thanks!

I love it! Using. ♥

This is such a great layout, I really want to use it, but something seems to be glitching; when I view my journal, the layout is too wide, but when viewing my friends page, it's fine, so I'm not sure what's wrong?
Jun 30 10 (UTC)
Yeah, someone else is reporting the same problem. I'm going to investigate it now, since unlike her journal, yours actually displays it on my computer. I'm dumbfounded as to what could be causing it, but I'll get back to you as soon as it's fixed.
