This is my first update made from inside XEmacs. Let's see if this works correctly. *grin*. I'm using the stuff at http://mah.everybody.org/hacks/emacs/ to do it. It's mostly just an entry poster and editor, but it looks like it can also do some template editing. The only problem is that it can't assign titles, so I have to go back to the MT interface to fix the title. I'll have to play with that some more.

I think I now have a layout for the journal that I like, although I chose a bunch of colors and I'm making extensive use of style sheets, and of course I've only checked any of it in Mozilla. So it may look horrible in IE. I'll have to check that or get someone else to. I also haven't touched a lot of the templates that are for things I'm not really using yet, and I'd still like to rewrite the XHTML in all of the templates to not be quite so ugly. But that can all wait.

I'm staying up tonight doing this in part because I've finally come down fully with the cold that's been threatening to attack for some time now. Of course, it would do that just in time for the weekend rather than waiting until the week so that I could get some time off work. And I had a lot of things I wanted to get done this weekend. Well, hopefully it won't be too bad and I can mostly ignore it.

yay, you've been productive! i like the colour scheme. this is what the font sizes look like:

woops. of course html is turned off in comments (MT comes like that, because one should know what one is doing before turning it on -- you want one of the sanitizing plugins before doing so). you'll have to cut-n-paste.

i ran into this myself and ended up setting actual font sizes instead of "small/large" so that it would look decent in other browsers.
